This video by Irish artist Willie Doherty, shot in Murcia over the course of one day and one night, was shaped by the slow flow of the Segura River and the shifts in light from day to night. The underside of a motorway bridge that crosses the river was the main location of the work and acted as a constant reminder of the presence of everyday human activity.
