‘Survey of a diesel canopy’ presents a view of a diesel station placed within a cylindrical form which is suspended from the ceiling. The ground plane is at eye level. The diesel station is stripped to its naked form and becomes generic. It is enclosed in a silent landscape and is isolated from what lies beyond. The piece allows the viewer to travel around it but the motion that is experienced is frozen. Any anticipation of arrival is denied to the viewer. The familiar becomes estranged.
