This installation in the new foyer of the NFT is delightful and clever. The four sets in the Gallery, the Traffic series, use miniatures to depict important moments from the couple's lives incorporating moments from cinema. But by using tiny video cameras, live footage of the moving miniatures is screened on the gallery wall as well as within the sets. Must be seen to be believed.
