London St Mary Axe Dial

Peter Newman’s time-lapse video, London St Mary Axe Dial (2015) concentrates on a diverse architectural landscape artfully recording five hundred years of distinctive design in one of his signature circles. St. Andrew’s church (1532), St Helen’s Tower (1969), 30 St Mary Axe (2004), and The Lloyd’s Building (1986) are all cradled as much by the inverted sky, as they are by the swell of the spherical image. Newman appears in this work to have candidly captured that period of time in any given day in the city when natural light is progressively superseded by artificial energy. The city is positively ignited by the illuminated glow of glass fronted constructs, cars zipping between buildings, and pedestrians running over the concrete cityscape. As with the other works from the Dial series, the action for the most part is concentrated in the outer edge of the frame, in which peripheral zone the activity appears to reach fever-pitch when the working day ends and the draw of the early evening begins.
