This video begins with very minimal visual imagery. After some time information begins to reveal itself: this is a single take of a very large autobahn bridge in rural Germany which was hidden by morning mist. Recorded in real time, the rising sun evaporates the mist, slowly revealing a portrait of the bridge with the constant passing of the cars, which appear small from the camera position.

Installed at Geisterstaedte - Utopie - Architektur (presented by Julia Stoschek Collection & KAI 10), Abraham Building, Neuss.
