Split and replication of several frames creates a monumental structure and architecture of a female, mechanic "factory" that is ruled by the observer from above. Yet there is no production. The repetitive action is useless. The surreal group of women that are "played" by me in the video, perform a sport action that is characteristic of the Russian culture (where I grew up). Replications of the same shot create a disciplinary unity. The work expresses itself on several levels: the sentimental that is built out of a vague childhood memory and a mature, rationalist level that criticizes the disciplined perception in which the individual works for one collective goal and by that, eliminates himself.
