Aided by a mobile viewing device, the artist presented locals with stereoscopic images taken by the Virginia based photographer Horace D. Ashton in 1913 for Underwood & Underwood, and asked them about the places shown. The stereoscopic 3D technique seems to bring up strong experiences and memories of the city. Observers try to locate the images in coherent narrations and in the process, unfold different historical layers of the city as well as contemporary environmental and urban planning problems. The path of the video follows the routes marked by the Victorian-era photographic tour, originally produced to show middle class North Americans a picturesque view of Latin America.
