Accompanied and illuminated by animated video projections, a lone man travels back and forth between bridge arches which, too, are lit by projections. The passing of time is reflected by the speed at which the performer traverses the distance between each active spot, which is mirrored by all the animations: as time passes and stamina subsides, the performer gets slower and slower accompanied by slower and slower projections, and the arch projections get faster and faster, until the performer has slowed to a halt and the arch projections reach intense speed. 3 hours.

An investigation into the concepts of passage of time, passage of life, passages in life, destinations, goals and achievements. Mired in monotonous task-driven struggle, the performer illustrates the basic life drive, keep going on, which is ultimately uplifting.
