Whilst night walking, and capturing images and sounds at night, we examine its contribution to ongoing reflections on new methods to collect, produce and convey knowledge about corporeality and the rhythms, noises and thoughts of the night and lives of night workers in the nocturnal cities of the future, usually 'invisible' to the dominant diurnal eye and mind.
