A video portrait in which the title suggests what the image and action should be. The frame is one shot - the camera follows the "pattern", the movement, the gestures. The viewer, however, does not see the real image, but his video scopes - the range of the color graph. The waveforms indicate the level of the video signal. The presence of more "white dots" in different color levels means a well captured image. Here it is hidden behind the technical graph. The viewer is prompted to decipher these charts and analyze them. To try to build their own associations on the image, based on the direction given in the title of the work. In the contemporary art world, the image is increasingly produced not by the artist but by the apparatus of the art industry.
