In a detached room of an exhibition space a long take of a new built high-rise is shown as large scale projection directly on to the wall. Urban sounds fill the exhibition space: of passing trains and cars, and of kids skateboarding under a railway bridge. A separate voiceover is available to audiences through two pairs of headphones. Here a male voice contemplates on a different sort of structure: a rural house, gradually expanding into a field, a horizontal structure built room by room over time, according to its inhabitants needs. The video installation is a contemplation on migration as structure of feeling and on the nostalgia for ways of living that have turned into fading memories.
