This composite of video footage is a series of three "sketches," in which elements will never be taken to create a much larger virtual monument to the author J.G. Ballard. Within the video, disparate shots of an array of motorway overpasses and exchanges are stitched together in order to create a complex machinic landscape of concrete, smoke and automobiles. The images hurtle through a dense arterial chaos of constructed time and sibilance, dissolving into a column of smoke and revealing their destination as circular and contained.
