An Embroidery of Voids: A Surreal Journey through Alleyways and Narrow Spaces by Daniel Crooks



Trying to describe this short film by artist Daniel Crooks (previously) is a bit challenging, but once you start watching you’ll get the idea. Crooks filmed narrow passages, alleys, and other nooks and crannies that he stitched together into this seemingly infinite corridor. Make sure to turn up the volume or put on some headphones, Byron Scullin‘s sound design adds an entirely different dimension. The piece was originally commissioned by Silvia and Michael Kantor for the National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne.
