By sitting on a especially constructed chair, you can run 15 different movies containing 255 differrent images. The chair works like a multi zapping interface, that lets you create nearly infinite image combinations. As the actor is very close to the wall, information fragments are turning into a kind of abstract painting in which you and your shadow will be included.
