An enormous tape loop stretches between three tape players. On the loop, the spoken word “Ich” [“I”, or “ego”] travels from one magnetophone to the next. When the word arrives at a magnetophone and a person, the “Ich” sounds. All portrayed persons lay claim to the same “I”, their “I”. (Endless loop).
