Crumbs #2 (Drunken Sailor) | 2' 42" | 2019

Each of the Crumbs series pairs a reel of un-edited film with sounds from anywhere. In Crumbs #2, semi-bucolic footage of Hackney Marshes and Walthamstow Marshes is accompanied by a sea shanty being sung on the soundtrack. The film contradictarily tries to induce a gentle, calming sense of everyday urban open space while on-screen instructions obscure the view. It's kind of about taking a back seat and just relaxing, or at least trying to.
