The video shows what reminds us of a landscape passing by a train window. After a while the lines are getting displaced. The field becomes the sky and vice versa. Gradually, the spatial representation of a landscape disappears and the screens become living stripes, which the spectator battles to preserve as one total structure. What we thought was a form of nature is revealed as only a screen formed by our own ideas. In this work, the artist removes defining layers from new media: the screen-image, the interface and the interaction. What remains is a kernel of computation.
