Speed Date at St. Paul’s


1 min, video

An animated visit …under the portico, past the statue of Donne and up the geometric staircase, a quick spin around the great model and out onto the roof. This one-minute playful, dynamic tour of Wren’s London icon undercuts the usual reverence accorded to his ‘masterpiece’. The viewer avoids crowds of tourists enjoying a privileged private view of parts of the cathedral not generally open to the public. The vibrant injection of colour and movement of silks as seen against the pale Portland stone, elicits new visual perspectives on an old and familiar landmark.
