"lonely in a crowd; distant, separate from others; something in common, not sure what; crossing boundaries, twisting space. You are here, and I am here. Here but not here at all at the same time."

"HERE BUT NOT HERE AT ALL AT THE SAME TIME" is an experimental slow-motion, slit-scan short, exploring identity, presence, absence, and otherness in a pedestrian context.
Slit-scan and non-conventional narrative aim to challenge the viewer's traditional view and perspective :

Who and Where is the alien ?

The static subject ?
The modulated spontaneously self-choreographing public body ?
The relationship between the two entities ?

Or something / somewhere else entirely ?
