In front of an old blackboard - which still carries traces of erased chalk - there is a monitor attached to tracks. The viewer can move the monitor both horizontally and vertically. In doing so, the monitor passes over words and sentences that are not visible on the actual blackboard. When the monitor passes over a position where a word used to be, another word appears. The words and sentences are quotations and fragments of quotations, which have been extracted from the compound topic Memory/Text/Image. They have been written, photographed and digitalized onto the blackboard from different people and then erased. The computer randomly assigns the quotations new positions on the blackboard.text.
