Maybe this Time I Win, 1989
"A 15 minute animation in which keywords of an exposé on knowledge representation in the field of Artificial Intelligence are combined with the faces of 15 heartdisease patients. The colors on the patients faces indicate which kind of disease the person suffers of. The film is part of a visual investigation in the intrinsic connection between abstract and concrete cult-places as surviving mechanisms on one hand and on the other hand progress and civilization diseases."
"My installations deal with topical problems of contemporary artistic survival related to the restoration of impaired functions of the central nervous system. The fundamental principles underlying the work of the brain, which enabled it to function for many years without interruption, today command the interest of experts not only in medicine, biology and science, but in art as well. This is because these principles can be utilized to make survival mechanisms more reliable." — AMVK
