RANDOM ACTS - THE RED ZONE // CHANNEL 4
The Red Zone is our second collaboration with acclaimed visual artist Tom Dale for Channel 4’s Random Acts series. As with all of Tom’s work it both mesmerises and makes one think. It centres around the footprint left by a city dissolved into thin air. Filmed in Christchurch New Zealand, in an area cleared of buildings in anticipation of another quake, the film interrogates with camera and voice the sense of absence that fills this space.
Narrated by renowned artist Susan Hiller the film uses pyrotechnics, drones and helicopters to reveal just how active the absent is upon our sense of place and presence.
