The Barbican has marked the passing of the Crossrail Tunnel Boring Machines Elizabeth and Victoria beneath the Barbican Estate by commissioning this subtle, hipnotic, industrial film, which seems to chime perfectly with the Brutalist Barbican, which you can imagine above ground. Music for Pipe Dreams has been created by LoneLady, filming by Bevis Bowden, animation by Daniela Sherer and production and direction by Sidd Khajuria.The team was granted access to the Barbican section of the tunnel, which connects Liverpool Street and Farringdon. Barbican says: “The film captures the magic of the tunnels in their present state, revealing the underground landscape and contemplating what is being created underneath our feet.
