”Dear Sir Bartleby
… You say you would prefer not to perform the tasks your employer asks you to carry out. Why? That I am not certain of, but one thing seems clear – precisely that you will not. It is this act of refusal and the questions it brings with it, which makes me write to you, Sir. Out of your negation emerges a question of potentiality to me, which is something I will attempt to unfold in this letter. …”
Excerpt from ‘Letter to Bartleby’ written by the artist.

At Holodeck Marie Thams shows the video installation No, and other possibilities. The work is an artistic investigation dealing with human potentiality in creative fields. By breaking with the expected and focusing on the possibility of Not using our potential and to Stop doing something Thams raises an urgent question in a time and field for endless possibilities and demands for productivity.
