This film was shot with the camera placed above a space. It is placed so that the floor below is seen receding dramatically into perspective. Drawings are produced on the floor that deny the perspective of the floor and reinforce the verticality of the film plane. However, when the performer walks across the drawings, the perspective of the floor is reasserted. Interaction between the performer in the space, rotation of drawings and the drawings produce a fluctuating perceptions of the filmed space, the receding floor, and the drawings which emphasize the vertical plane of the screen. Negative and positive image shifts are incorporated to develop perceptual discrepancies. They produce a kind of perceptual distortion that subverts the logical interpretation of information based on prior experience.

Simon in the Land of Chalk Drawings is a British children's animated television programme, featuring the adventures of a young child named Simon, who has a magic chalkboard. Things that Simon draws upon the chalkboard become real in "The Land of Chalk Drawings", which Simon can enter by climbing over a fence near his home with a ladder, interacting with his chalk drawings, including his chalk-drawn friend Henry. Stories often revolve around the unintended effects that Simon's drawings have on the Land of Chalk Drawings, such as when an upset Simon draws a picture of his angry self, which proceeds to go on a rampage. The programme is based upon the writings of Edward McLachlan. It was produced in the mid 1970s by FilmFair Productions in London for Thames Television, and was originally a 5 minute programme, broadcast around tea time in Britain. The programme also became familiar to American audiences in the mid-1970s when it was featured on Captain Kangaroo, later on Pinwheel, and after that, on Romper Room. In Canada it was narrated by Ernie Coombs and shown on CBC Television, while the Ontario public network, TVOntario, aired the original British version.
