In the post-Covid era, modern man is faced with a new rhythm of life, where the constructs of time and space have changed, and it is more and more difficult to distinguish between days. I use the image of the cinema as a living organism, where time is either stopped or paused. This parallel world is arranged like a trap — a black wigwam, where nightmares, strange fantasies come out, and the sense of reality is twisted. We watch the life of the cinema hall as a mysterious film, but the feeling that we are being watched in return does not leave us. And this question — who is looking at whom, remains open for interpretation to the viewer.
