From familiar crushes to claustrophobic dreams, Atomic was about tiny worlds and shared spaces.
To the strains of plainsong and the pulse of contemporary rock, the 3 characters manipulated and transformed their world. As the setting shifted from a train to a library to a clothes store changing room we saw their hopes and dreams. We watched their tales unfold as they jockeyed for position to claim their patch in their ever-changing shrinking world. Once the equilibrium of the small space was disturbed, the particles and people became unstable...
Atomic wasn't intended to be a literal story but more of a tapestry - a blend of interlacing pictures and scenes which shared a common theme.
