2009 3 mins


As the winning artist of the 2008 Film London Jarman Award, Luke Fowler was commissioned to produce four short films for 3 Minute Wonder, Channel 4's shorts strand. Known collectively as The Tenement Films, they are a series of portraits of four diverse individuals brought together through a shared residence - a flat in a Victorian tenement in the West End of Glasgow. David's interior is sparse and uncluttered. The structure of this film is extended to the evening, where the viewer is offered scenes filmed from his window. Cars and passers-by come and go while the daylight changes from twilight to deep night. Part of the Derek Jarman Awards collection.
