The former Oberfinanzdirektion / Regional Finance Office building on Adickesallee in Frankfurt: On the eighth floor, a view of the cityscape is recorded, indirectly, using only the reflections in a window. By slowly moving the window, the buildings of the surrounding neighbourhood gradually appear at one edge of the pane and disappear at the other edge. The wall recesses visible through the window pane, and the window frame divide the video vertically. In contrast, the skyline, as well as the lines of the moving window blinds pass through horizontally. The video starts and ends with the window closed.
