The main topic of the video work Ortem is the metro's traffic system, which creates a specific space and perception situation via its underground architecture. The film as an abstract essay focuses on phenomena like: speed, perception, architecture, memory and examines the two dimensional and anonymous aspect of everyday life and experience. The discourse about the representation of areas and places meets real architecture. The cinematic reflection of the social and cultural dispositives of urban spaces plumbs the intersections, which have designed it.
