Accompanied by a solemn chant, which slowly becomes a rough repetition of a feedbacked guitar loop, the miniature boats of the Mini-Europe theme park in Brussels appear one after the other, seamlessly. The models fade into each other intersecting refections of great European landscapes and leaving the way to underwater worlds, where the eerie presence of accidental insects and  fish seems to be the only guarantee of a still existing life beyond the mechanisation of an endlessly decaying self perpetuating system.
