Perhaps her best-known body of work, the 'Five Revolutionary Seconds' series, uses a panoramic camera to take a full 360° image of an interior during a five second exposure. The works are populated by numerous figures, each of which appear to exist in their own time and space, expressing a range of charged states from melancholy to decadence, to violence and alienation. For Counter Editions Taylor-Wood has produced a new work, Looking Out. Taken in the picture gallery at Althorp House, ancestral home to the Spencers and final resting place of Diana, Princess of Wales, Looking Out features a solitary, contemplative figure, portrayed by the actress Thandie Newton. Taylor-Wood here has also employed her trade mark panoramic camera, but here the image is a 120° pan selected from a full 360° shot. Taylor-Wood typically leaves the narrative unresolved, saying "I wanted someone who was achingly beautiful in a surrounding that was equally achingly beautiful, but for the two to be slightly incongruous."
