A documentation of Tõnis Saadoja's ceiling painting process at Theatre NO99 in Tallinn. Instead of showing the artist at work, the series aims to take a more subjective point of view on the motif chosen by the artist, the eclectic architectural setting that contains elements of both earlier German and later Stalinist influences and the atmosphere of the long process undertaken by the artist. The series was published in a book alongside an essay on the concept of art in public spaces, an overview of Estonian mural art and an interview with Tõnis Saadoja.
