Sandycombe Lodge in Twickenham, once the ‘country’ villa of the artist JMW Turner has been restored and re-opened to the public. Caroline AreskogJones made two beautiful subtle silent films as portraits of Sandycombe Lodge prior to the refurbishment process.

The first, With heart as calm as lake that sleeps, includes a script written by me
The second film is ‘diagram of a geometrical perspective on memory: after Turner
