On a wall-filling projection, the black and white shot of a historic stereo system with side horn speakers and an overly large bass unit can be seen. In addition, a computer-generated, distorted and reverberant male voice is heard, apparently sounding from the horn speakers of the projected stereo system. This English-language voice contains a poetic text consisting exclusively of terms that begin with “no”: no fear, no anxiety, no truth … The terms refer to general human, social and psychological topics, to current day and world political problems, phenomena and discourses. The video installation is shown in a darkened room, largely isolated from other sound sources.
