Poised on an improvised stage in an industrial park, Hermes, the Greek god of commerce and theft, the inventor of weights and measures, and emissary of the gods, addresses the stream of cars, cyclists and pedestrians who pass him by on their way to evening events or parties.

Evoking a time of social and economic uncertainty, he presents himself as the travellerís guide - one who knows the terrain, its many paths, its pitfalls, and who is able to decode the dangerous topography. His speech uses sophistry and other rhetorical devices to weave an ambiguous tale of economic ecology, a discourse of crisis, and of the not-too-distant future.
