EN - An architect talks about the city he has built. Gradually, we realise that the city is imaginary and his account is an attempt to give his ideas a fixed shape.

NL - Een architect vertelt over de stad die hij heeft gebouwd. Gaandeweg blijkt dat die stad denkbeeldig is. Zijn betoog is een vruchteloze poging om zijn denkbeelden vaste vorm te geven. Dat is in een notendop het verhaal van Thing.

FR - Un architecte parle de la ville qu’il a construite. Chemin faisant, il s’avère qu’il s’agit d’une ville imaginaire. Son exposé est une tentative stérile de donner corps à ses pensées. Voilà en bref l’histoire de Thing.
