Superstructures is a twin-screen DVD piece that presents the input and output of a bespoke computer program which had been programmed to respond to levels of ambient light. The input footage, that of a neon tube nearing the end of its life, is controlling glimpses of a metal superstructure similar to that which underpins the concrete walls of its original exhibition space.
(A single-screen video version was made in 2008.)
