Short description
The American poet Robert Lax, a representative of concrete poetry, dies at the age of 85 in September 2000. From a New York artist group that decisively impacted the following Beat Generation he withdrew in the 60ies to the Greek islands Kalymnos and Patmos.

Between the years1993 and 1999 Nicolas Humbert and Werner Penzel who were on close friendly terms with him, visited and filmed him. The installation, initially named Three Windows and consisted of three one-hour films has now been bundled to be shown in one poetic documentation of sixty minutes.
