Seven scenes, partly filmed by Ulf Aminde, partly taken from the internet,
are shown on seven at screens installed in an upright position. Each film shows a person who is neither standing, nor lying, nor awake or asleep but persists in a virtual state of intoxication. Due to drug overconsumption they freeze into one gesture – which stands in contrast to the people rushing by.
As if put on hold, the figures become screensavers of themselves. Their urge to devour, in its ruinous extreme, leads to an interruption of the normal flow on the street.
