A fixed camera records moving objects. This is an investigation of two urban sites, one located indoors and the other one outdoors. Long panoramas of an exhibition hall and short shots of the activity of the adjacent street alternate. The text on the video invites the viewer to reflect on the meaning and structure of words and their relation to the concepts they designate.
