AN EXPERIMENT IN LEISURE

Excerpts of texts by psychoanalyst Marion Milner (1900-1998) on concentration, the body, repetition, daydreaming and open-ended time as conditions for creation are read and reflected upon by different artists. These voices and the silences in between them, images of a seascape in Norway and of the artists’ workspaces, as well as sounds at and near the Norwegian coast create parallel spaces, each following their own rhythm. The resulting experience of time resonates with Milner’s idea of leisure: not a moment opposed to work, but a time allowing us to perceive and think freely without an immediate objective.
