Seamless Transitions, 2015
Seamless Transitions is a 3D video tour of three British sites of immigration detention, trial, and deportation: Field House, home of the Special Immigration Appeals Commission (SIAC), designed for the presentation of secret evidence; Harmondsworth IRC at Heathrow, part of the UK’s detention estate; and the Inflite Jet Centre. Modeled on planning documents and eyewitness accounts, the work re-creates these highly political but architecturally bland spaces that denied asylum seekers pass through before their rendition by air—spaces that are otherwise invisible in public life.
Digital video projection, one channel, 5:28 min., digital file 1920 x 1708 px.
Seamless Transitions was commissioned by The Photographers’ Gallery, London, and supported by Nome, Berlin, and public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England. Animation by Picture Plane.
