The Embassy is a nocturnal birds-eye flight lit by the light of a torch down into, across and out an imaginary house, depicted in 40 small gouache paintings. The paintings are hanging onto the walls of a small room, whose surface mime the ones of one of the rooms in the house depicted. The lighting is faint, provoking an effect of flotation of the pictures over the wall.
