The work utilizes the locomotive as a historical symbol of human progress, and interrogates the notion of progress by creating a narrative that only moves forward through a repetition of the past. The ‘ghosting’ of the locomotive employs the effect called Pepperʼs Ghost where the physical object is reflected into the visual space through the use of reflective glass combined with specific lighting and scene.
