Each day that I spent working in my studio during an approximate period of one month, I changed the position of my working table; sometimes this also required moving other pieces of furniture. Daily changes of configuration of the objects in the room were photographed and drawn in a plan. All the photos were taken from the same positions in the corners of the room, but their cut and composition slightly changed from one case to another in response to aesthetic qualities of individual arrangements. On the basis of the documentation of the movements in the studio, I made a video-performance, in which all the transfers were repeated in one continuous movement.
