Description

Knocked is an unreleased Dreaming Methods project inspired by a short story written by Andy Campbell in 1995. A cross between The Diary of Anne Sykes and Fractured, Knocked featured visuals of a bright red vanity case that would later appear in Nightingale’s Playground and WALLPAPER. The project uses a mix of video capture and surreal imagery, and follows the story of a man who is hit (‘knocked down’) by a vehicle, only to find himself in a hybrid ‘limbo-like’ reality.
