This train station, located in Hønefoss, Norway, is old and no longer in use. The video highlights the complexity of motion through time and space – linear and circular- along with other basic concepts: light / dark, action / stillness. By filming the station from the same fixed angle with just a few trains passing each day, it was possible to capture the effect that motion has in a predefined setting and its still state of being.
