You Are in a Room

The text painted on on the fabric, thus making it partially transparent, is derived from the dialogue of the film The Bitter Tears of Petra von Kant by R. W. Fassbinder. The film is set inside one space. While its characters discuss their past and mutual relationships the latter come to a head.
Two panels feature original lines, while the other two panels show lines which were processed with a software which reassembled the word order, to be later crafted into new and varying sentences.
