The book "The third police man" by Flann O'Brian is a metaphysical travel on a bicycle through a post-modern murder case with life, memory and houses lost and regained addressing some existentialist questions. For this video, I bicycle in an emptry wonderful lower Manhattan penthouse loft around with my girlfriend Romana Rozsypalova reading an excerpts from chapter two. The text addresses issue of housing and space, speaks of houses wihtout walls and houses where you can keep "cattle" - all issues that resonate in real estate sensitive New York.

text used: underlined parts were read twice - everything was read until " ... keeping even cattle".
