Walkers


Using a text adapted from Paul Virilio’s Pure War, and scenes of pedestrian movement in urban landscapes, combined with the visually arresting treatment of archival images of twentieth century warfare and wartime, Walkers explores our changing experience of space and time as everyday life is shaped by the military developments of technological speed and spectacular motion.
