You Can  03:23, Color, Stereo, NL, 2008

Slowly, in a meditative mood, the camera investigates details of the interior of an old house. The water tap is dripping, a woman’s hand is embroidering a tablecloth and a lizard slowly crawls over a bowl of red berries. Trees, duckweed and brushwood alternate with the scenes from the interior, describing the mood of a moment like a string of haiku’s. Bach’s opening aria of the Goldberg Variations forms the frame of this ‘associative editing’ piece that bears references to Dutch painters Pieter Claesz and Lara de Moor.
