About the clip
Ellie Land's work explores the Angel of the North's role as a landmark piece. Ellie canvassed drivers from the North East who pass the Angel frequently to ask their personal thoughts and feelings about the sculpture.
The drivers talk about how the Angel of the North rises up to relieve the monotony of motorway driving and their own feelings on the Antony Gormley sculpture. Their thoughts and feelings have been used to create animated imagery, which is juxtaposed with scenes from a motorway journey symbolising the emergence of the Angel on a journey along the A1.
