The image projected as a negative shows a construction worker in his workplace, moving in front of a window overlooking the sea and onto the horizon. The image is interrupted by intermittent flashes that make the worker’s figure appear and disappear. As the figure disappears, the photosensitive screen retains the ghost-like prints of the worker’s presence and activities, contrasting with the motionless structure of the scaffolding.
