The monitor screen is horizontally divided into two parts. On the upper half, we can see a hand moving an ice cube across the skin of a naked man in lying position. From feet to brow. Meanwhile, the bottom half shows the water dripping, trickling down, which causes a glittering effect. The bottom half slowly fills up the whole image, so that a circle of melting water can be seen. The playing time of the tape equals the time it takes the ice to melt.
