As an opening, landscapes are shown but the sound environment exceeds the precision of the film medium, then a voice makes its way through the noise. Evocation breaks away from observation. It tackles deeper phenomena. It attempts to verbalize inwardness. With a vocal quintet of artists, musicians or dancers, without playing a melody, without filming a body, An Experiment in Leisure exceeds the field of the visible and the audible, in the footsteps of psychoanalyst, painter and writer Marion Milner.
