The project presents three photographs taken by a supermarket monitoring system in different abandoned corners of the building. This kind of security system constitutes the building‘s intelligence and can be viewed metaphorically as an endoscopy of the architectural space.

A text in a light box tells the story of an Argentine ranch owner, who was likely the first man to use film technology for security monitoring. The staccato noise of a film projector is the acoustic background of the entire scenery.

People‘s determination „not to miss any events“ in a society governed by control paradoxically produces a state of contemplation comparable to an absence. This constitutes the vicious circle of the Pycnolepsy and can act as the side effect of a „preventive security“ strategy.
