Clock & Train

Clock & Train

Synopsis

"As the train pulls out of a station I start winding the film through the camera, but before it runs out I reverse the motion and wind the film back to the beginning. The result is a double exposure – the view through the window passes in opposite directions, a clock runs backwards as well as forwards, and a cigarette burns shorter and longer." – Guy Sherwin
