Dead Man Walking

1996, 2:23 min, color, sound

Deadman Walking presents unyielding voyeurism on the London Underground. A middle-aged commuter pulls a variety of bored expressions. As the sequence starts the train is leaving Temple Station, center for the city's law practises and named for the Order of the Knights Templars, the suppressed Medieval Order from which the Freemasons claim decent. Asher's camera focuses on the Gold signet ring the commuter wears, a symbol of a Freemason.
