Online streaming video showing an actor holding his breath that is played in a loop and is accompanied by a counter that registers days, hours minutes and seconds of time online. The browser window becomes a physical border for the actor who seems to be pent. The action of holding his breath never finishes referring directly to the “here and now” state of the viewer matched against the “always and nowhere” state of the internet’s spectacle world.
