Tunnel Installation 2012
Submitted by: Erin Elizabeth Dickson
Description: The Tyne Pedestrian and Cyclist Tunnel was my first experience of architectural phenomenology, which wasn’t connected to somewhere I had lived. I was taken to a lot of architecturally significant sites as a child and in contrast to the usual stately homes and castles; the TPCT had a very different atmosphere altogether.
On later visits I was again struck by how the tunnel manipulated my emotions by its distinctive architecture. The mixture of old and new (original tiling/ new strip lighting) coupled with the smells and sounds, mostly made by the tunnel itself, drew me time and again back to the site, even though I had no reason to use it for its intended purpose of crossing the river.
One thing that struck me the most was that at the centre of the tunnel a line distinguishes the crossing between the original Counties of Durham and Northumberland, a line on a map made physical. Walking through that line is an unusual experience. What if you stand on that line, are you nowhere? What If I put something else on that line, does that thing start to have its own set of physical rules?
