Sunrise Plaza was vacant for fifteen years: a derelict building with broken, unglazed windows. Its skyline neighbour was Sharda Glass: a sparkling new architectural glass firm.
The film is shot at sunrise, focusing on the mournful edifice of the Plaza. Discrete movements of a bird flying overhead or a truck pulling up indicate time passing. The backless, disembodied feel of the Plaza is extended in the film's screening on 4 x 4 arrangement of translucent LCDs. The LCD's, commissioned by Samsung, never made it to full production.
Today, Sunrise plaza has been gutted and redeveloped into a Hyatt hotel, while Sharda glass, having failed on its deliveries for Heathrow's terminal five, recently went bust.
