Customized ventilation ducts are used as vertically reflective periscopes, with a screen hidden on one side of the ground playing videos. The upper vent serves as the viewing position for the reflected videos, compressing the perspective of looking down from a height.
Whenever that plane becomes quiet, losing its depth, timely casts of temptations stir up moments of ripples.
