Nostalgia for times past and echoes of the genteel sounds of the piano. Time is defined by countless little details reappearing in different places just like film, which is the art of detail and exploration, but which also stems from the past. We see a mighty but decaying old house, which hides its own memories. The picture is colored brown in the hue of old photographs. The color, scent and sound

Nostalgia for times past and echoes of the genteel sounds of the piano. Time is defined by countless little details reappearing in different places just like film, which is the art of detail and exploration, but which also stems from the past. We see a mighty but decaying old house, which hides its own memories. The picture is colored brown in the hue of old photographs. The color, scent and sound of the past are being violently interrupted by the image of modernity in the form of a dancer moving to techno beats. The color of this interfering image of modernity is bright green. It is also a metaphor of the video image on our TV sets, which is becoming increasingly violent and insensitive to the time of introspection.
