The films are simple video portraits of a sheeted figure standing in iconic landscape/heritage locations. The figure simply stands, the sheet moves in the breeze, life goes on around.

The subtexts are subtle and implicit, an observation of the phenomenon of the heritage industry and our contemporary obsession with being photographed next to iconic landmarks.
