Filmed entirely using thermal imaging cameras at last year’s Great North Run, Heatscapes is a series of short films that trace the race participants' journeys across the cityscape. The cameras make visible the glowing heat generated by the runners' bodies during their training, warm up and the race itself, and reveal the temporary heat prints transferred from the runners onto the urban fabric as they move through the city.

Heatscapes will premiere at The Gallery, Tyneside Cinema where the artist has conceived a multi-screen installation specifically for The Gallery, transforming the space via multiple projections.

Heatscapes is a Great North Run Culture Moving Image Commission.
