In painting, for instance, a landscape, the painter uses his hands continuously. Hands are the instruments with which he prepares the canvas and manipulates the brushes. The camera is the instrument for making a videotape. The hands are left free and even pose as the landscape itself. In 'Landscape' the hands are taken out of their active context and brought onto a more abstract and universal plane. The boundaries of time and space become blurred in image as much as sound: the private sound of breathing widens onto an almost cosmic dimension.
