The narrow space behind the display window is empty. There is nothing to be seen except a hole in the back wall in front of which the glass is clouded. Pasch leads the viewer to the glass surface, on the other side of which a strange disembodied breath fogs up. We are excluded from the interior of an absent other. That breathing body remains invisible.
"nah" describes the exhalation in an onomatopoeic way. While the lips around the n are already slightly open, but the tongue still closes the mouth against the palate, so that the breath can only escape gently through the nose, the mouth opens wide to the sounding a. The air flows out from deep in the stomach, and the voice fades away in the breath. (text: Frederik Wellmann)
