A container ship slowly ploughs its way up the River Rhine against the background of a row of apartment buildings. The video is cut into 180 vertical strips and joined together again in a completely new spatial configuration. As the vessel appears in the scene, the time structure of the fragmented picture space begins to change and the ship gradually becomes recognizable as such. The picture plane of the still fragmented background and that of the now hardly fragmented container ship seem to become detached from one another. The spatial relationship between the two picture planes is thus reduced to a minimum.
