|Hanging from a cornice, a girl in pyjamas makes her way along the outside façade of a pretty tall building. She embodies the modern heroine, dangerously confronted to the city. In the background, the image of the metropolis changes at great speed, like yet another character with multiple faces, an accelerated echo of Malevitch’s architektons and Hans Richter’s animations.
Everything happens in a looped shot which is apparently identical on the two double projection screens. However, in one of them, after great effort the girl finally manages to climb inside the room; on the opposite screen, the same girl fails and falls into space.
