Dryden Goodwin London
Dryden Goodwin's scrutiny of contemporary Britain has led him to spy on late-night city workers, filming them from the street as they burn the midnight oil in amber glass offices, gently caressing their faces with a laser pen. He has also recorded the facial expressions of football fans and manic stockbrokers, slowing down the footage so these familiar faces become strangely unworldly.

Flight, Goodwin's new film installation, follows the journey of an unseen protagonist escaping the urban jungle. JL
