In FLEXIBLE BODIES a high-rise building protrudes out of its surroundings as a strange object. It's the (already dated) materialized utopia of an ideal workspace, dreams of career opportunities and selfoptimization echoing through the hallways. In and around the building bodies converge: working, exercising, growing. While we follow a woman through the building, the question arises which bodies here are real or if what we are seeing is part of an elaborate plan or just part of someone's phantasy.
