Ream is a gesture of transformation.

This video shows creasing and wrinkling of five hundred blank sheets of A4 paper on the tarmac at the disused Tempelhof airport in Berlin.
Faced with the infinity of this task, we observe the active passivity of an individual faced with the absurdity of his perseverance and the subtlety of his boredom.
The horizon in the background, place of passage, becomes the field of intense activity.
