'View Through Time' condenses linear time to emerge as a single event in an attempt to emulate an experience of history. For hundreds of years a silent order of monks and thousands of others have gazed through the same glass. This site specific work, made at Torre Abbey, Torquay, is silent and as ghosts emerge through the layers there is a strong sense of the presence of past.
