Dawn. Video installation 1986, with 1 min extract from video simulation. Dawn is made for 3 monitors and a synchronizer. 
6 min. 10 sec, U-matic (¾´), Pal, Color Stereo. It has been digitalized and is from 2017 synchronized with computer play back of videos

Dawn deals with the connection between the realistic image
and the abstract one.The image is of people moving from one
screen to the next. With repeating shooting of the last shot shows
this connection. As colors and forms reflect light in a different way, the form of the facial features separates slowly and with the progressing of the repetition the facial features separates
one another into independant abstract forms. With movement
from one screen to the next the TV is in the foreground as an object that can be accessed from the side as one might be walking into
the frame and out of it again.
