There are 4 monitors positioned in a line on the floor. Their black screens display repetitious synchronous movement of white lines. After each movement cycle the lines are rotated 1,8° so that by the end of the video loop they draw a full circle. The elements of symmetry and repetitions form the basis of an ornament. The idea of an ornament interests me as a way to express abstract ideas in a sphere of sensual perception.
