‘AESTHETICA ART PRIZE EXHIBITION’ YORK GALLERY (SHORTLISTED)
A groundbreaking film installation by Toby Dye created for the ‘Daydreaming with…Stanley Kubrick’ art exhibition at Somerset House, London. Curated by James Lavelle, Mo’Wax and UNKLE founder, the exhibition showcased art works inspired by Stanley Kubrick and featured artists as diverse as Anish Kapoor to Daft Punk.

For the installation, the audience is immersed in a large square room where all four walls are filled with the same never-ending tracking shot travelling down the same identical corridor. Each of the four films sees a different character journeying down their own never-ending narratives. The four stories weave together to form a disorientating, hypnotic, Kubrickian tale of control, violence and the doomed cycle of power. The installation plays on a seamless continuous loop, without any visible joins – both the tracking shots and the action within them looping back on themselves invisibly.
Shots described it as “Epic…a ground-breaking installation” and the Daily Telegraph praised it as “mind-boggling, funny and mildly disturbing”, whilst High Snobiety commented ‘This is the music video Kubrick never got to make. A masterful piece of work that not only pays homage to Kubrick but also brings an extra dimension to a filmography that you thought could not be improved upon.”
