A fragment of the artist's face is repeated, juxtaposed with blurred images from a TV programme. The detail of the face is in colour, the TV images are black and white and without sound, while the face contorts into whimpering sounds. »The battle between one's own and the prefabricated television images.« (Barbara Hammann & Dieter Daniels)
