“Tyrrau Mawr” – Bedwyr Williams

The blacked out room in which Bedwyr Williams’ “Tyrrau Mawr” is displayed immediately immerses you into his utopian city; a mixture Snowdonia and the idea of a super city. Stretching from floor to ceiling the screen dwarfs the viewer as you sit on the floor in marsh-mellow type beanbags. The film is accompanied by Williams’ narration of the monotony of city life, and how the residents feel about their city. Several  skyscrapers are set into the hillside surrounded by smaller corporate looking buildings which border the lake in the middle of the screen. The presence of the inhabitants is only shown through the turning on and off of lights in buildings and the narration – no figures are seen in the film giving the city a ghost town vibe.
