"An authentic projection of kinetic still life, 300 x 400 cm. A picture of a working watch mechanism and a schematic map of the world dating from the fifties were, during the symposium, projected onto the wall under the main staircase of the convent. The projection was visible only after dark. During the performance organized for the symposium's opening, the shadow of Michal Bouzek played with (and failed to turn on) the time machine."
