A short story about new bodies, the power of denial, and a state of no sunshine. Two infantile bodies float in a cyberspace ball, connected by two subconscious bodies in the background. The attempt at unification and metamorphosis is interrupted by one part as the other is liberated. A glance over the shoulder means destruction.

The sources for the soundtrack are fragments of the childish voices of early Michael Jackson and Stevie Wonder songs.

Performed by Bjørn and Roald Melhus.

"Melhus appears to be best suited to unite the diverse positions within media-art. His trips into the world of body-fantasms are at once fascinating journeys into the unknown, and an uncanny look at an old acquaintance..."
