Daniels presents three short sequences documenting the specific viewpoints from hotel rooms where he stayed in Hong Kong, Chongqing and Macau.
These films attempt to process the rapid movements and energies from the immediate environments briefly observed by the artist.
The frenetic action of the metropolitan spaces rapidly shifts between day and night and expose the scale of the collective habitats within view.
