Toby Dye originally created ‘The Corridor’, a ground-breaking film installation, specifically for Daydreaming with…Stanley Kubrick the hit art exhibition at Somerset House, London, in 2016. Subsequently though the piece has been picked up by galleries around the world, so it has been constantly in exhibition to this day.

For the installation, the audience is immersed in a large square room where all four walls are filled with the same never-ending tracking shot travelling down the same identical corridor. Each of the four films sees a different character journeying down their own never-ending narratives. The four stories weave together to form a disorientating, hypnotic, Kubrickian tale of control, violence and the doomed cycle of power. The installation plays on a seamless continuous loop, without any visible joins – both the tracking shots and the action within them looping back on themselves invisibly.
“Epic…a ground-breaking installation” Shots Magazine
“This is the music video Kubrick never got to make. A masterful piece of work that not only pays homage to Kubrick but also brings an extra dimension to a filmography that you thought could not be improved upon.” High Snobiety Magazine
“Mind-bending and haunting… at once mind-boggling, funny and mildly disturbing.” The Daily Telegraph
“Spectacular” Time Out
