2004, and now is being presented in At Home Gallery in Samorin, also 
in former synagogue. The project of american artist Bill Seaman deals 
with the local place, architectural elements and social relations and 
incorporates poetry texts with music, visual art and media in 
collaboration with the local people. Inspired by cultural, historical 
and architectural context of Trnava town, its psychological influence 
and some details of human body, the artist juxtaposed these elements 
to the video-work with impressive music and whispered texts in both 

Another part of the project is based on exhibiting these poetic texts 
in Slovak and English version in public spaces of Trnava and 
Samorin using the classical frame and material of  the street signs.
