A factory gate in Ghana, a landing stage on the Cayman Islands, a marketplace in the Netherlands and a laundromat, whose geographical position is unknown. Webcam streams from these different continents and time zones are used in the installation "Roermond-Ecke-Tropical Gate" by Markus Kison to connect the places in a poetic way. The four live videos are projected onto exact miniatures of the very same places. Thus "live-models" of distant worlds are created, which we can perceive three-dimensional and even touch. The model becomes a stage or even alive. We take part in the foreign everyday life of unaware protagonists.
