A corridor with a gully. The 15 minute zoom forces the viewer constantly to revise their perceptions. The off-screen scraps of conversation and music are also just intimations. Michael Palm projects secrets, and provokes the search for answers. "The image is unclear, it flickers and shows more than the eye can see; the less there is to see, the more the image stares out at us." (Drehli Robnik)
