01//SKIN - Documentary

Tom Parker, ScanLAB Projects


The Mabley Flyover has no skin. A bare infrastructure link at the entrance to the glossy Olympic Park needs a facelift. London01 // SKIN was a journey across the city, collecting facades to decorate this flat, concrete monolith. Guided by local historians, graffiti artists and architects we cherry picked the most compelling, 3- Dimensional details the city has to offer, precisely scanning their every detail.

These scans formed the basis for a film created by each student. Under the speeding traffic of the A12 we lit the gloom - painting the underbelly of one of London’s busiest roads with this borrowed ornament.

This short documentary by Tom Parker follows the groups progress and shows glimpses of the final films produced.
