‘Life By Life’
Single channel video
The videotape begins with a shot as is shown alongside. At the temple, next to the eye, the skin moves rhythmically to the beating of the hart. Gradually the picture with the fish is mixed through, in which the gill of the fish is moving simultaneously with the temple. The moment picture one has been replaced by picture two, the knife falls and we see a stationary picture of the cut off fish-head. The sound of the heartbeat has now been replaced, in the same rhythm, by the ticking of a clock.
Sound and picture of heartbeat, knife and clock, are varied rhythmically, leading to complex audiovisual structures.
