This is another from the Elys window displays. This one is dozens of sheets of paper, all glued to walls that lead inwards towards the TV which is showing frames from a CCTV style camera of a woman writing a letter, screwing it up and trying again...

The processing has brought out the grain, which I smoothed out a little, but I like it. The scene is in reality very white and I wanted to bring out more of the tungsten glow from the lighting and clash it with the blue glow from the TV, creating more shadows and giving it a slightly unnerving feel. To add to the shot I waited a few minutes for this specific frame to roll around again, where she looks over her shoulder.
