Slips of paper are pasted to the rear walls of Muscovite supermarkets or at bus stations. The public authorities remove them again. New slips of paper will be applied: These concern private offers and wanted ads for rooms, apartments, massages, computer assistance and instant loans. These notes built a thick layer of paper, which is fraying on the edges.
The video work shows the rear wall of a bus station, pasted with slips of paper, which gently rise and fall in every gust of wind. Simultaneously, the observer perceives through the glass or reflected in it the movements of the city. In this video installation the projector’s fan seems to generate the wind stirring the slips of paper.
