As titans of industry, trains traverse the winding tracks all over the world, connecting city to city, port to port. They rumble through bustling urban centers adding to the frenetic energy integral to city life. This installation takes inspiration from Norfolk, yet the imagined landscape melds familiar architecture with forms found simultaneously everywhere and nowhere.
