video, b/w, 4:3, stereo, BE, 2002, 15'

A high electronic tone demands our attention and sparks off a journey through a computer-drawn space. We land up in a minimalist landscape dominated by the suggestion that something is out there in the distance. The horizon allows us a first glimpse of rectangles which, when we come closer, define buildings as in a city, or walls as in an indoor space.
Rhythmically and temporized to the music by Ryoji Ikeda, we are being steered through the representation, after which the next image is already twinkling seductively in the distance. This contemplative and absorbing work was made for a presentation by the belgian fashiondesigner Bruno Pieters at the Petit Palais in Paris.
