The memory of a place will always stick with you, the experience the colouring of the walls, the smell in the air, and the textures of the walls. This piece is one of those experience recreated in another location. Portraying a place with such a strong identity, a structure that has went through many changes of use and appropriation. Now left as a haunting reminder to a darker period.
The use of stop frame is a reminder of how I experienced this structure, a tourist only able to capture snippits through photography, yet it has entered my psyche as a place I will never be able to forget.
