Around All Saints' Day, the streets on the frontiers of Vršovice and Vinohrady, with the nearby hospital complex, are quietly abandoned and melancholic. Occasionally, a pedestrian pass by a villa with a broken exterior bell, that emits a torturous buzz. It is suggesting that residents are either deaf or have left. Where are they? The reminder of those, who are no longer here, together with the psychogeography of the Vinohrady City Hospital on the one hand and the Olšany Cemetery on the other. Thi can in the pedestrian's mind trigger an feelings of anxiety? there is here something invisible and unknown.
