Trivial, recurring situations: those that fill our lives like simple intervals. The ordinariness of these situations makes them forgettable and similar while we might find many differences between them if we look closer. The video is made during the course of one year. It is my gazing at the moments of longing of people around me. In order to get the door open, I turned into a god of a small world; a place for observing without being seen. Through the hole in the door, I became like a god that imposed his mental games on his subjects, while keeping the distance.
