The Two monitors are placed on the floor, the screens facing the ceiling. Both show the same video sequence that runs a-synchronic in a random way, resulting in images on both monitors that are sometimes equal and sometimes different.

The structure of the sequences is as follows:

The static picture of a little cup filled with a dark green liquid, is gradually replaced by the picture of a hand holding this cup free in the air.

The slight movements of the hand become visible through the moving liquid inside the cup. A mouth-opening, filled with the same liquid and filmed from above, subsequently replaces this shot.

The images keep alternating, in varying orders.

The use of sound is optional. When used, a lo-volume breathing sound is audible together with the images of the mouth.
