For Tangency Paul Feichter moulded a ball from a wooden tree stump. He sank a video camera into this ball and then experimented with rolling the camera around Osnabrück’s Rosenplatz. On the day of the final presentation his films were projected on the floor in the exhibtion place whilst visitors pushed the ball through the streets.
