A video to the sound of a Viennese waltz, zooms and panning shots of New York City; and then a quick side-trip to Vienna. A silhouette appears – Miss Piggy from the Muppet Show, the American icon of the 1970s and 1980s. Miss Piggy leads us into her world: She becomes a projection surface, literally. Everything revolves and changes. What we see becomes more and more dense in her guise: A wild collage where the layers of images multiply and keep on generating new patterns and scenes.
