Focus… Why so bogged down in focus? This functional format of a fucking studio is only a formal necessity. Pervasive Internet pervasive lunch pervasive friends. An article in the New York Times 'The Art of Distraction' converging my good willed intentions and labour away from any authentic focus. Where is authentic focus when the subject matter is distraction? Distracted distractions or concentrated distractions? Is the subject matter distraction or have I simply distracted myself to such an indescribable degree that this seems appropriate? Scribable indescribability, subtracted distracted refracted distressed. Indescribable scribable scribbable bibble. Is bibble a real British snack? …

And you can get some sort of answer. Although unlike mathematics there is no universally accepted outcome and is even possible that you conform to the third definition of rationalisation – ‘a defense mechanism by which your true motivation is concealed by explaining your actions and feelings in a way that is not threatening’.
Our glance lingers over a fresh cream slice outlined by maybe twenty equally cream pages on either side, cuffed by a supposedly black (actually dark grey) scratched matte, slightly pinked card exterior. The page, painterly in itself, defouled by the scrawly spider notes and shit drawings.
The page denotes: The corridor space will be used. The walls are black, the protagonist is lit from behind -The protagonist anxiously walks over the uneven surface and gets distracted by a side room –– switch camera angle ––
