During the journey to Odessa there is a glass of tea standing in front of the train window. Next to it lies a spoon. The train’s movements cause the elliptical surface of the tea to tremble as does the spoon. The stationary camera captures the various movements: the passing by landscape, the gentle ripple on the tea surface, the jiggling of the spoon, the play of light between spoon and tea glass and the latter’s wandering shadow. The train stops. Passengers on the platform. The agitated still life freezes. The train moves forward. The still life starts moving.
