In The Labyrinth

In preparation for the Experimenting with Geography workshop, Jonathan Prior, Eric Laurier and I have made a short film exploring the Institute of Geography at the University of Edinburgh. The building is a reverberant, cavernous space which can feel almost haunted at times. It’s full of stairs and doors and empty corridors, so we wanted the film to reflect this. The building once housed a hospital, and something of that former function lingers. Jonathan says that there is a room now occupied by PhD students which used to be the morgue.

The film ends with Jonathan sitting down in G10, where the workshop in May will be held.

I take full responsibility for the dodgy camerawork here. Film isn’t really my medium, as you can perhaps tell. Thanks to Eric for the use of the cameras and the editing.
