recording of light event

The space of King´s Cross in central London is confronted with the planned modern high-speed railway lines which in the future will link people in time and space. The parallel laser lines radically cross a quiet night landscape of an apparent periphery of a big city. The transitional stagnation of derelict industrial buildings and storehouses is filled with the energy of motion and speed in the same area in the future, when it will become again a direct connection with the world.
