as an installation from the 8th of March 2012 through to 10th of April in Roodkapje, Roterdam.
In Februari 16th in Hedah, Maastricht - an evening with a screening followed by a concert of Zoikle.

The film is a modern fable about human production within the structure of a group. How tolerant is the group to outside elements while it is trying to achieve its goals?

The film comments on the illusionistic aspect of market economy. Fictive structures being invented within a closed circuit; and suggesting to embark an open mind set instead - hence artistic production as a principle for all production.
As Taylor C., a semi mythological figure announces: “ Any construction is a reconstruction of the kernel idea “
