As denizens, the city streets, alleyways and architecture are the collective wallpaper of our existence. Wellington’s many vantage points and secret shortcuts are social currency. Step into a Distant Corridor where you are invited into a kaleidoscope of music and movement. Take a moment or fifteen to slow down and take in the beauty of colour, movement, music, space and time. Are you looking back at where you came from? Or are you looking ahead to where you're going? In this moment you are enveloped with layered loops of string music as thoughts and movement emerge out of the corner of your eye in the distance. Watch as a familiar corridor transforms before your eyes and ears.
