In 2013 the installation was simultaneously placed in two different locations on the globe – the Troitsky drawbridge in Saint-Petersburg and the legendary Magere Brug (the Skinny Bridge) in Amsterdam. The screens were then connected via video bridge – so, that audience in Russia and the Netherlands could communicate with one another in real time and share their affection for street-art and animation. The short film and animation program, collected by Multivision Festival and its partner KLIK! Amsterdam festival was simultaneously shown in the two cities.
