On request of the curator of the Suburban Video Lounge, Toine Horvers, I made a single screen installation. I seized this opportunity by using the coffee-bar upstairs as a location, and the labourers as my cast.

A 'Chinese whisper' between the workers of the coffee-bar. It is the game in which a message is repeated from one person to the next, down a line.
