The concept of this videowork was to continue the theme of lines (which is also explored in other works from this period) in relation to organic structures. The theme is actually derived from the technological conditions of the medium video itself, as the screen image is based on a line structure.The living lines of a hand develop into the structure of wood grain as the video progresses. In the past, the video was shown in the context of an installation with the same title, including three monitors, wooden walls and 15 photographs.
