    Videoinstallation, Hi-8, 1997
    sound: Marie-Cecile Reber

    A cycle of coming and going. The light beam of the video projection
    is the main actor in the installation. It casts its light both on the smaller,
    raised part of the transparent roll of paper and on the longer
    surface on the floor, and projects people drifting in a strong river
    current. They appear at the top of the raised surface and move down
    to the horizontal plane where they become increasingly stretched
    and move much faster back towards the light beam. This way, the
    beam is both a source of light that spits out people and a black hole
    that swallows them up again .
