  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.
