The ebb and flow of Paris traffic

As part of its new evening series of Friday Lates, the London Transport Museum is staging Sounds of the Suburbs on 6 November. The multi-sensory event, curated by D-Fuse, will also screen a new short by design studio, FL@33, called 8min20sec. It’s just been uploaded to our Feed section…

The short film – uploaded to Feed, here – is part of an ongoing project by London-based FL@33, the design studio founded by Agathe Jacquillat and Tomi Vollauschek.

The DV footage was recorded in Paris, they explain, “at the Place Charles de Gaulle (aka Place de l’Étoile) from the top of the Arc de Triomphe. It offers a bird’s-eye view to the exceptionally busy roundabout below, in which the Arc stands.”

The haunting soundtrack accompanying the hypnotic, looping film – which kicks in after about a minute and a half – was composed and performed especially for the video piece by the Mercury Quartet. (More information on the project can be found on the FL@33 site, here, which also includes a series of prints).

8min20sec (2009) will be screened in HD on Friday 6 November at London’s Transport Museum as part of the Sounds of the Suburbs late night opening.

More info on the event and how to get tickets at the LTM website. Sounds of the Suburbs features performances from D-Fuse, Labmeta, *Spark and Electrovision and live illustration from Andy Morgan.
