The presence of people is shown by filming a door. A step further away from 'being' and 'being-there'. Not a subject is filmed, but the environment in which a subject functions. The object which is filmed, doesn't change, but it's appearance changes continuously. It is an attention shift which takes you to the edge of 'being-there'. In the longing to understand 'what is', the attention is not taken a step in the direction of the object which is being studied, but it takes a step back because the step back is oriented towards what is still being kept in reserve in order to gain insight into other possibilities to experience what is, to experience more, to see the richness of our environment.
