As a first step of the work process a person is portrayed on video. The resulting tape is then stretched on a polyester-mounted panel. The tape runs in such great density side by side across the surface that the vertical line composition appears as a dense, mirroring tape structure that reflects the space in front of it. In the end the spheres of figurative and abstract principles meet evasively in a single work of art.
