a clock with a copy of my body as hands … it stands still and on screen a heart is beating … if somebody gets closer to the clock, the hands start to rotate … it ticks … on screen slogans start to appear in a fast sequence … no time … pressure … no pressure … time … the ticking speeds up … hurry up … work harder … come on … stop dreaming … between these lines the spectator sees himself on screen … he became part of the machinery.
