The Reading Room

Country: UK
Duration: 3 mins
Sound: Silent
Ratio: 4:3
Available Format/s: SD Digital file
Original Format: SD Video


The reading room traces the movement of visitors to the British Museum reading room through an entire working day in under three minutes and in silence. The work is a short reflection on the changing nature of archives. The film notes that future access to them is not guaranteed and the physical location of an archive may still hold a fascination, even as a museum.
