On a trip from Prague to Kolín and back, Czech philosopher Miroslav Petříček focuses his wit and camera on the structural aspects of the environment. Equipped with catalogues of avant-garde interwar photographers such as Jaroslav Rossler, Jaromír Funke, and Josef Sudek, he wanders about a local power plant and, while engaging the director in conversation, seeks out the real-life motifs of their photographs. Horizontal and vertical lines, framing, light and shadow are ever more emphatically peel away from visual and verbal reflections upon the perception of geometry and the geometry of perception.
