A Video-Loop-Installation that shows heavy military aircraft flying maneuvers in front of a huge city scape. An unclear situation. It looks like an invasion but still carries out a strong poetry. Military machinery connect closely with the desire of control and power. The video resembles the observation aesthetics in nature documentary films where a desire to find untouched nature is usually manifested. The combination of both create tension and poetry.

"We appreciate the mystery of the work and how it elegantly confronts us with authority and state power.
Moreover, we felt hypnotized by this compelling visual piece that is both beautiful and disturbing."
