The Narrows


Short film
There is a street near me known as The Narrows. Many a vehicle has met its doom there, between the bollards in the hidden kink halfway along. At this point the driver usually screeches to a halt and suffers the indignity of passing smirks while waiting for a recovery call-out.
   I was once there with the artist Chewing Gum Man, otherwise known as Ben Wilson. We were sitting on the ground next to the wall on the right, and I was filming him - as part of my Land Ground Earth Soil project - painting one of his micro art pieces on a piece of discarded chewing gum. Suddenly there was a loud bang.
