"Phantom Ride is fundamentally cinematic: it draws on the history of the early phantom ride films popular in the late 19th and early 20th centuries and the significant role trains have played in the development of filmic technique. Yet Crooks brings this history of radical cinematic experimentation into the present with a digital video work that lures us into an impossible world. By designing a custom, and highly sophisticated, filming device and developing innovative video compositing techniques, with Phantom Ride Crooks has created a work that pushes his practice into a new realm." - Katrina Sedgwick
