Two holographic deer bulls fight endlessly against the backdrop of a monumental and deserted landscape. The sound of the slide projector vent (not recorded in the video above) functions as the soundtrack of wind.

The work refers to Upper-Paleolithic cave paintings in several ways:

  • The work is projected straight on the wall (not on a screen).
  • Fighting animals, including deer, are a returning theme in a number of these paintings.
  • The landscape is reminiscent of post-Ice age landscapes (but might also be set in the far future).
