The filmmaker accepts the challenge posed by Ludwig Wittgenstein in `On certainty' (1949-51) to suppose that a table either vanishes or alters shape when no one is observing it, and changes not only a table, but also chairs, shoes, teapots, and almost anything and everything lying around his house.
