You enter an empty space that begins to talk to you about cities and their stories, slowly movements start to happen in the space till suddenly you find yourself in a huge city that has unfolded without you really realizing it. A white, clean city with buildings as heigh as the ceiling, in which every story is made visible, languages are being invented and transition are made.
