"...There is a hint of complicity hovering in the air: the refinement of the taste buds and especially of the olfactory organs has its moments of weakness, of loss of class, when the cheeses on their platters seem to proffer themselves as if on the divans of a brothel. A perverse grin flickers in the satisfaction of debasing the object of one's own gluttony with lowering nicknames: crottin, boule de moine, bouton de calotte.[...]The elaborate and greedy order that he intended to make momentarily slips his mind; he stammers; he falls back on the most obvious, the most banal, the most advertised, as if the automatons of mass civilisation were waiting only for this moment of uncertainty on his part in order to seize him again and have him at their mercy..."

Paraphrasing Calvino- somehow cheesyly, Sam Renseiw proceeds to amalgamate footage from three recently visited installations/performances, creating a peculiar spatial mash-up with appended soundtrack.
