Slow Motions is a work in which Rainer makes his way into a white space. In this film, the artist shows his entire body. Unlike his other videos, which include some explosive moments, here Rainer only makes slow and subdued movements. The video has been edited, which means that Rainer has personally selected what he thinks are the best images. He appears to be investigating body language, with the emphasis on communication by movements of the body, without explicit facial expressions.
