Each video sequence is compiled from multiple takes of the same figure running across the bridge i.e. wide shot, mid shot, close-up. This material is edited to make a short, fast sequence of approximately 42 separate cuts. The figure is located permanently running in the middle of the bridge. He never reaches his destination and is caught in the act of running continuously. One sequence depicts the man running towards the camera, which is moving away from him, at the same speed. The other sequence shows the man running away from the camera which is moving after him, keeping him constantly within the frame.
