technologies imbue old things with a new life. A soda fountain is
transformed into a stylish multimedia device, a time machine of sorts.
After inserting а real Soviet three-kopeck coin into a real Soviet soda
fountain from the sixties a viewer gets, instead of a glass of apricot
soda, a nostalgic video about the fact that time is a relative notion.
Soviet soda fountain is a familiar thing to any Russian, if not from
personal experience then from the movies. After inserting an obsolete
3-kopeck coin into it, the viewer might expect an effervescent drink to
please the taste, but instead gets a feast for the eyes and soul: a
video about the four seasons and the things past and present.
