-__NOCTURNES__ is the culmination of a two month research-residency in Finsbury Park, commissioned ​as part of [[http://​www.amillionminutes.org/​projects/​frances-scott/​|'​A Million Minutes'​]]. The research was structured as a series of night shifts, and the resulting work was formed through a number of exchanges with night shift workers in the area, including taxi drivers and bowling alley attendants. __NOCTURNES__ was presented on 16 December 2013, between sunset at 15:51 and midnight, and comprised two '​channels':​ a series of 35mm colour photographs transferred to 35mm slide, and installed as a double-projection in a dis-used taxi rank on Berriman Road; and a short text work, '​published'​ as a loop on a dot-matrix screen at Rowans Tenpin Bowl on Stroud Green Road. __NOCTURNES__ drew upon the social as much as mythical dimensions of the night, and pivoted around an embodied investigation into communal experiences of time, within the phenomenon of 24/7.+__NOCTURNES__ is the culmination of a two month residency in Finsbury Park, commissioned ​by AIR at Central Saint Martins.
