Video loop, 4:47 min

    The video is based on two biographical text depicting “Zaum Attacks”. The collage takes on a reflexive, contemporary digital dimension that combines archival footage, video, sound, and personal writing that supposedly takes place in real time. The computer screen becomes an “image machine” - a monitor with a memory.
