Interfererende patronen op basis van een bewegend lijntje geven een fijne structuur en een hypnotiserende film.tekst iffr 1999:Abstracte compositie van licht en geluid waarin de mechanica en optica van film niet het middel maar het doel zijn. De beelden worden opgewekt door lange stroboscopische belichtingen, met als gevolg een neo-primitieve vorm van op-art. Een hommage aan de wetenschappers die de basis legden van het medium film.
