'The short experimental film uses the formula of the classic suspense movie to materialise the sensation of trauma. The dramatic music, the focusing on a close-up visual perimeter, the use of a handheld camera, which causes the depressing 'shakiness' of the shots – all this triggers both physical and emotional reactions. While inevitably related to the current pandemic situation, the video actually gives a much more universal warning far beyond the specifics of the moment. The film is also somewhat ironic – behind the chilling tension on the surface, it shows just an empty apartment (the artist’s studio), while the suspense caused by the sound is based on samples from the ready-to-use library, an element of the video editing software. It’s a readymade suspense that everyone can create according to one’s taste.'
