The photo shows the mise-en-scene "best setting" used by the Swiss President Deiss at World Trade Centre, Amsterdam, 2004, organized by dutchartdesk. "best setting 2" contains a microphone and a loudspeaker for the speaker, a banner bearing the words "the wrong work at the wrong time for the wrong place", a flag with the words "fast alles" ("almost everything") and a banner showing a cup imprinted with the sentence "you pay but you don't agree with the price". A table was also positioned so that the video revolution could be shown at the appropriate height and cartons and tool cases could be stacked beneath it. The video loop revolution shows a number of white sheets of A4 paper whirling through the air and slowly falling to the floor.
