"Pietsch constructed two irregular, derelict screens divided by a gap. Dennis Greenwood and Gaby Agis would enter, exit and pause slowly to imprint their silhouettes. Butcher saw one imprint and sometimes superimposing itself on another and replacing it, creating the effect of one person repeatedly slipping away from the other. At one performance, Agis's body pressed against the back wall between the screens, one arm raised; Greenwood was alongside her, his head bent into her neck, producing an image of intense vulnerability."
