That’s the though one. What really makes this image work is the ambience of the room defined by the only available light source – TV screen. It painted everything around in an interesting, weird colors. The problem is that, since most monitors are not really calibrated – the image will mostly appear too dark, in some cases too bright, and on very few as intended. So WYSIWYG. If you want to see how it was meant to look calibrate your monitor, or order a print. Oh well…

Found few 16mm reels buried in boxes with stuff that came to me from the past. Mostly devoid of any meaningful reference.

Testimony that those few passing seconds actually happened in your life, right ? Meh…
Oddly enough Satie was one of the few that we were listening to at that time (so I was told). Along with the music of Philip Glass, Arvo Part, David Sylvian, and few important others it shaped sonic ambience of that time.
