The installation, the title of which can be translated as »Where are all these people going?«, consists of three automatic sliding glass doors which are installed, one behind the other, at a distance of four meters from one another. The glass surfaces of the doors and the floor space between the doors serve as projection surfaces.

When a visitor approaches the first door, an infra-red transmitter is activated and changes the first two levels of images on the floor and on the door. The door opens automatically, and by passing though, the next two image levels are influenced

The video images depict many slowly moving human bodies. When a visitor approaches a door, the bodies move and try with all their might to open rooms and to overcome doors and other obstacles in order to get from one room to the next.
