Mark Lewis is an artist-filmmaker whose work often focuses on short, silent films and on the descriptive and pictorial qualities of this medium.  His commission for Queen Street was a film shot in the local area on 35mm, at the time of year when the sun casts the longest shadows.  It follows the daily rush hour, pedestrians and passers-by becoming unknowing actors within this short narration of an everyday event.  For Light Up Queen Street the film was inverted and projected on different scales at two sites in the area - Prudent Passage and St. Mary-le-Bow churchyard.


This work was part of the Light Up Queen Street Programme, curated and organised by Modus Operandi
