Looking down into the well (how can we resist, front of a well, the urge to look into it?), the viewer witnesses an unexpected scene. Seen from above, from a distance, following each other, some people are slowly walking in a circle into this improbable space.
Its apparent verticality is created by the mean of a mirror positioned at 45 degrees across the tube. The filmed image of the walking people is projected onto a screen. From the top, only a segment of the circular procession is visible, suggesting that the space, at the bottom of the well could be vast. A distant and discrete sound track completes the piece.
