The video screens showed an animation of colorful cloths, interrupted by magic tricks, which mostly worked in connection with a cell phone or iPad. The film also serves as a kind of screensaver and entertainment program for the trip.

The bus stopped in the Haselhorst district of Berlin and the hosts accompanying the tour led the group. There were 7 different locations where short lectures were given about the buildings and their purpose: an allotment garden, a rental warehouse, a data center, a tax office, a thermal power station and a substation.

The performance of the buildings was explained and references were made to electrical communication. During the tour, the participants were asked to take part in the photo competition on energy in Haselhorst. At certain points, they were made aware of a photo opportunity by means of signs. The smartphone photos were then collected via WhatsApp, evaluated by a jury and three prize winners were selected.

The tour ended with a, initiated by a performative gesture of the hosts, Picnic in front of the thermal power station. The photos submitted to the competition were shown on the monitors on the bus on the way back.
