A 12 minute film, with sound, which offers a "new reading" of the York Street vaults in Bath UK - a space within the Roman baths complex which is outside of the tourist zone. The film is the consequence of a lighting installation which aimed to reveal the vaults in discreet fragments, challenging received notions of heritage and authenticity, and suggesting that the vaults have an aesthetic value of their own.
