In the context of the 2014 Folkestone Triennial, The Electric Line by Gabriel Lester, reactivates the obsolete, former Oriental Express train track. Leading to a seaside ferry station, this urban terrace made of Chinese bamboo offers a view across the harbour. For this work, parts of the bamboo are cut to become wind chimes, providing the site with an instant, soothing soundtrack, and a tree rises out of the floor, breaking the geometric structure of the observation deck with color and organic form. At night The Electric Line lights up, pulsing with electricity, much like a sound-wave, and simultaneously illuminated the harbour.
