While visiting the still under construction TAF building, it came back to my mind this feeling I had as a kid visiting various small electrical appliances repair shops with my mother, as well as the many attempts to have my father's ageing Omega watch fixed.

Omega is a series of small wooden boxes with VU meters attached on. The movement of their needles, which creates the audio side of the piece, is controlled by a computer. A camera tracks the visitors movement which affects the meters' oscillation, as if they sense their presence, or are they maybe geiger counters measuring the presence of the former inhabitants of the room?
