Rail

After his endless strain of back alleys Daniel Crooks found an even better frame for his video stitches. In his new video Phantom Ride the tracks lead you through a host of railway landscapes, this time with a clever twist.

As much as in the Embroidery of Voids video, the audio is a huge addition to the experience.
