By looking through two opposing peepholes, drilled in two ends of a suitcase, a white space comes into sight. This space appears infinite, due to two mirrors facing each other. The repetition of the reflection elongates the space and gives the sensation of being inside a long empty, functional and sterile corridor. It is a non-place, a term used by the French sociologist Marc Augé to describe a transient space for the rapid flow of passengers typical of airports, bus and subway stations. The repetition of the peepholes is analogous to surveillance systems, very common in non-places.
