Set in a nightclub and dingy street in a small town in Wales, I wanted to capture the sense of despair the characters feel, and the atmosphere of a wet, windy street in a rundown town at night. The floor is inspired by reflective puddles of oil and water, and projections of the characters inner thoughts appear over the remnants of a shattered rearview mirror.
