Suzanne Nessim & Teresa Wennberg

This video deals with the emptiness in an inevitable voyage between two points. At the same time as an efficient activity is paralyzed during this period, since the question of transportation between A and B has no meaning as such, this very procedure is necessary for the original action to continue. The difference between thought and action,between understanding and realization.The alienation of modern society.
