In a workplace situated higher than any other in Poland the employees are suspended in beyond time and space.

In a workplace situated higher than any other in Poland, the constant nocturnal observation of the surrounding world is an unbroken norm. The employees suspended in beyond time and space in The Place remain at their posts, unshaken and immovable, despite reversals, adversities and startling situations.
