East Croydon Ramp explores the space and time of a railway platform; as a train departs, as people rush for their connection, and in doing so how they interact with this very particular spatial condition of circulatory design. The speeding train smearing streaks of colour across the frame gives way to deep views across platforms. The framing of the film is aligned with the horizontal edge of the train platform and the movement of the passing train. The ramp shifts this horizontal geometry, both in the movement of the running passengers and the fixed architectural forms which structure their travel.
