The American Idler was created in a world where the feeling of superfluity and the menacing emptiness of the remaining time can be observed on surrounding persons and surrounding things, among which their time flows by in a compulsory way.
Here, as well as on the landscapes, the main urge is to recall the feeling of immobility, the apparent constancy which implies the condition of death. Details of deserted streets, squares, parking places, buffets become impersonal, unbearable, life-less. This method implies something basically antagonistic.
The imagery of the American Idlers its streets, interiors and exteriors, its hesitatingly loitering characters. Here appear apparently supernatural lights in the background, filtering in through the cracks, and create a strange, dream-like atmosphere. The world becomes a scenery where the unreal becomes real, it is a perfect opposite of the monotonous reality of the ordinary world.
