Taking as the scenario for this video the Koepelgevangenis and partnering with an ex-prisoner of the jail a character opens aleatory connections throughout different passages he may find at this building. Door after door the circuit is endless. The ex-prisoner finds a way of being in control of the building by transforming its map once in charge of his freedom of movement and decision.

At the same time there is no way out of this territory, he is destined to loop in this circular space perpetually.

This will be one last testimony of a building that had a function. The imprisonment being represented by the act of an ex-prisoner. Paradoxically a building which in the future will serve the opposite function: freeing men by knowledge?
