Olympic Dreams

2012, Digital Video
05mins 20secs

Consisting of over 7500 individually photographed still frames, Olympic Dreams questions the nature of the dominant line surrounding London’s Olympic Park. This line has come to represent a border between the Olympic elite and local residents, who are pushed away from a movement that claims to embody inclusion and community. The film questions these values by revealing the imposing nature of the fence alongside images that constitute the Olympic edge-lands, taking the viewer into a space that is free from the utilitarian connotations of the fence.
