Past time, suspended time. Macro vision serves as a tool to experience what has long been known. Perceptual tension between the in and out of focus, between enquiry and observation, abstraction and representation persuade the body to look and experience more intently. At once disturbing and nostalgic, the soundtrack lures the viewer into a claustrophobic and apocalyptic space as we have to find new ways of being with the world. Filmed and recorded during the Covid-19 lockdown in Waterlow Park, London and Guilden Morden, Cambridgeshire.
