The Porter’s lodge (design: Jan Wils) at the Olympic Stadium was moved 30 metres in march 2002 due to the building of new estate. 

 

At the porter’s desk there is a surveillance monitor. On the monitor you see the porter’s lodge positioned at its original post, before having been moved in March 2002. The desk, the chair, the monitor, the telephone, the pencil, everything is

(literally) stuck, all except for the guarded object itself: the Porter’s lodge.

The pictures shown on the monitor are recorded live from the toilet.
