Video consists of 10 scenes which formally represent characters of the Balthus’s paintings. The characters are frozen in an atmosphere of idleness and actualize the hovering as if in a trance consciousness of a modern man, a user of social networks and forums where information is presented in a fragmented form. These fragments are short emotions, evaluations, opinions, jokes. The Internet space appears as a field of meaningless fragmented information. The characters in the video together with a superimposed narrated quotes from the Internet express infantile consciousness of a network user.
Sound – voiceover dialogues composed of quotes from social networks.
