A black scaffolding structure is set on a mirror glass floor inducing the destruction of the fragile surface.

This destruction is continued by each person entering the structure as their weight adds more cracks in the surface.

Sequences of the film “The Picture of Dorian Gray” (USA 1945) are projected in the space and being distorted

by the mirrored floor as well as by features of the architecture, namely the niche of the window and its frame.
