The video shows a close up of a lake water surface. The image is projected overhead, from the ceiling, covering the whole floor of one of the spaces in an old public bath. The space is in between other rooms of the bath. By crossing it the viewer necessarily “goes” into the water and experiences an intuitive feeling for instability – he/she steps on the concrete floor, but at the same time appears surrounded by the calm movement of the waves in the video.
