Just a glimpse is a typical video work for Marshall, as it experiments with the different possibilities and properties of the medium. Marshall shows how you can make a simple image have an alienating effect by not allowing image and sound to correspond with each other. The title refers to the last part of the video, where you only get a glimpse of the filmed artist due to a disturbance in the image. The artist also constantly says 'just a glimpse'.
