This installation avoids being a mere showcase. Instead of dressing the kiosk, trying to attract visitors, we used a reverse psychology - visitors are attracted to the kiosk to see themselves.

The kiosk is shown as it really is, a framed empty space.

But the big mirror and aluminum surfaces seek the fusion of this space with its context, the city and the itineraries of the passers, accompanying them in their day to day activities.

The vitrines are transformed in movie screens, playing a video which shows the transformation of the kiosk.

Visual games, reflections, transparencies and looks towards oneself and towards the city are suggested...
