In the video Landscape with Spherical Architecture, the camera surveys a landscape in the distance of which there is a spherical architecture, panning from left to right at an even distance and creating a parallax effect by which the distant architecture moves gradually from right to left. This landscape is presented on LCD monitors oriented horizontally and arranged in a straight line, forming a composition of continual transformation in which the image only appears when viewers activate the work through a distance sensor; the resulting formal study is thus barred from serving its stated descriptive purpose.
