    Stills taken from a 16mm film shot during the construction of Perfect World in Hamburg. The movie is a structuralist film, beginning with the polishing of the aluminum tubes (the basic component of the Hamburg installation), which eventually are built into a scaffolding structure of the Perfect World. Running time: 4 hours. The stills represent approximately every 2 seconds of the original film.
