The work shows a small projection on a transparent sheet of polyester. It measures 10 x 15 cm. The projection sheet is almost like a transparent postcard that hangs on two thin lines, connected to the ceiling. The projection is slowed down and shows a mother and a young daughter in front of a shrine. The shot has been secretly filmed through an opening of the fence; you can still see two dark parts of the fence on each side of the image. The video starts as a normal everyday scene, where the mother and daughter seem to be just talking, then the mother opens the door of the shrine and they start the rituals of clapping hands a bowing in front of the shrine. The child looks at her mother to see how she should proceed this ritual. They bow and the image almost turns into a still image. After a long silent period of time the mother closes the door and they go on proceeding there every day live. Then they leave the scene.
