The tenor of the individual sequences is humorous and thoughtful at the same time. The starting point is static images or image portions of well-known artists such as Duchamp, Malewich, Botticelli, Tinguly, Matta, Picasso, Magritte or Dix.

Duchamp's urinal turning on the monument asks fundamental questions of art. Like Magritte's image 'This is Not a Pipe", which locates it as real, it remains notionally in the picture. What is Malewich's Suprematism? The black nothingness of the inter- black square? Maybe one should view the animation for several sequences as a game or question..."
