Another little video-object originating from the same medical archive as "Quod", it is - quite literally - a looking into an eye's blind spot. Again, the source material actually represents area of the optical nerve in the iris. Articulating a classical pictorial tension between surface and depth the video consists of a continuous zoom into a succession of discrete “flat” layers, with changing opacities. As both the separate layers and a spatial continuum are perceived simultaneously, it creates a paradoxical dream-like space.
