unReal Estate is a playful, cinematic still-life of the old reading room in the South Library on Essex Road, London: an idle expanse of space above the books. A still shot of the room frames actions of mapping, mopping and breathing. Light skims the dirty milkshake pinks and greens of its architecture, the atmosphere shifts, wet reflections steadily dry and disappear, the room remains secluded and remote.
Commissioned by Tintype Gallery for Essex Rd V, London
