Someone behind the door knocks at irregular intervals

(James Lowne, 2010, 5 min)

Julia spends the day at the leisure centre where she slips into a sombre reverie. As her thoughts continue she becomes aware of the possibility that perhaps she never came here at all. Outside in the sun, the stillness changes the road, it’s inherent notion of speed has dissipated, allowing the surface to be felt. The film suggests ideas of non-activity and meditation, memory and perception. It explores the relationship between contemplation and the act of looking.
