Video is reduced to middle vertical line of pixels, so it’s completly abstract. Sound hasn’t been changed. What you can hear are dialogues or sounds of nature recorded near water sources, such as rivers, taps, lakes. Although sound haven’t been modified, dialogues are recorded in native languages and left without translation – so they become abstract for almost all of the viewers. It’s the same level of abstraction of sound and picture, although only one of them was processed. Beside of this, nature of the human is to try to locate yourself in the real world. And it’s possible to do it. There’s one universal thing for us, no matter from which part of the world. It’s the nature.
