Nothing Happens. Nothing Happens.

“It is freezing cold on the outskirts of town. Yet people gather. I watch them form a row across the horizon. We all wait for something to happen. However, nothing does… Nothing Happens offers a new way of looking. It is about spectatorship — about watching and being watched. It is about being present.”
