It was autumn 2019. Britain on the eve of political upheaval, is split over the impending separation from Europe. Against this shifting background I wound my way on foot down the long valley to the Tamar river that separates Devon and Cornwall, and flows into those vast waters of the Sound. Two bridges placed side by side span the river at this point. I intended to cross the water via the pedestrian walkway on the road bridge. But I had to be quick. Ironically it was about to close that day for long term engineering works. Vertigo 282 is the soundtrack of my passage across, the narrative constantly shifting, slipping from action to inaction, from reality to fantasy, silence to noisiness, and like life it is on-going (until someone switches it off).
