Following Genesis (Ferrybridge - Scammonden Bridge)

Gec, Stefan
Stefan Gec works with a range of media, including sculpture, film, photography and, more recently, computer animation. Following Genesis (Ferrybridge – Scammonden Bridge) (2004) is a two-channel animation that focuses on two locations: Ferrybridge Power Station – situated just north of Pontefract – and Scammonden Bridge in the Pennines, just 30 miles west. Both of these man-made landmarks are well-known to Gec – a familiarity born of driving past them over many years. Gec offers us slow, aerial views of the two landmarks as the wireframe animation translates the highly sculptural industrial forms of Ferry Bridge Power Station and Scammonden Bridge into subtle drawings.
