Over 60,000 pieces of video tapes – records of births, baptisms, communions, weddings, birthdays, holidays and funerals. Prose of everyday life, documents, records of the surveillance cameras and Hollywood movies – from the home archives of the author and other people. The whole was formed on the model of a human mind, aging or decaying in a disease, suffering from blackouts, where broken memories flow in a hypnotic, ever-changing image.
Work comes to life only thanks to the enormous power of the fans, which, pumping breath into it, cause the constantly changing movement of the tapes spinning like a black hole.
