The video shows a group of roofers and two air conditioners at work. The processes running in the different picture planes are also brought in relation by the soundtrack which textually addresses the similarities of the two processes while seemingly originating from the air conditioning as from two speakers. Thus, the disparate places in the video image form a hybrid semantic space.
