A video portrait where the title suggests what the image is. The frame is one shot; the camera follows the 'model', the movement and the gestures. However, the viewer does not see the real image; instead, the video camera pans the range of colour graphics. The waveforms are showing the level of the video signal where the more 'white spots' there are in the various colour levels, the better the cinematography of the image. The image is hidden here behind the technical graphics. The viewer is asked to penetrate the opaque surface of speculation or truth, to read these diagrams and analyse them, to try to build up their own associations about the image and its 'creator', while relying on the information provided by the title of the work.
