On a vista of land, sea and sky, animated symbols and images floats across 4 screens. My first exhibition with moving images at the “Fotografia”-Gallery, Oslo 1999. A significant departure for me.

Some of the combinations on the monitors
A digital print in an edition of 25 was also part of the project. (h.44 x w.110 cm)
Parts of the project was later shown as a big screen/small screen version in “Approximately infinite” at the National Film Institute, Oslo 2002, and also published on the DVD: “4” in a one-screen, diptych, version 2000.
