04 Simon of Cyrene

5. Simon of Cyrene: Kilburn Station ticket hall.

Kilburn station is a grand suburban line building built under the bridges of two railway viaducts. It has a ticket office that is illuminated by a pool of filtered atrium daylight. Christ has fallen down the stairs and Simon, a concerned fellow passenger, goes to help. Around the drama of these two, others display the range of alternative responses: lack of interest, feigned ignorance and the desire to avoid becoming involved.
