Summer in Romania (1973)
2015, HD video without sound, loop

Digital composite based on an analog holiday photo from 1973. Pieces of the original photo were combined with found footage and computer generated images, resulting in a photorealistic image of something that never was. Every thirty seconds the image reveals its digitally manipulated layers, similar to a visual effects breakdown of a matte painting for a Hollywood movie.
