Cul-de-sac, 2004, video, 5 min.

A traveler is seen waiting at an empty railway station, while in a different scene the same traveler is seen travelling by a night train at full speed.
Shots alternate and these two conditions develop in the form of two independent stories that do not intersect or meet at any point.
The traveler is trapped in a timeless, enigmatic and lonely space where both the station and train lose their real spatial substance.
The question of the traveler’s emotional dead-end is presented without any obvious hints as to a potential solution.
Going away or escaping involves no destination while awaiting or anticipating is futile and endless.
