"Deeper is a video work of about forty minutes, in which AMVK tries to treat obvious, banal pictures in such a way that a new, anything except banal and even alarming reality arises. The character of the movement artist Marc Vanrunxt figures as human presence on a bridge across the motorway, in a room, a garden, an artist workshop etc.. Those pictures are cut through by other pictures, doubled and divided, discolored and solarised."

– Marc Ruyters

"Deeper: The anti-strategy of every modernist reduction rule loses its power in the inevitable confrontation with the abstract systems of radical negation and refusal. Deeper uses that modernist reduction rule as a style element to get down to the essence of matter by means of a kind of anti-evil. Thus also getting down into thought, searching for the immoral, the anti-matter. Deeper in the matter, further away from hell, along with symbolism, into the abysses of humankind, that is the purpose."

"The subtitle of the 44-minute movie is: "deeper into matter, further away from hell". What philosophers did before is now being done by particles-scientists: to investigate the essence of matter... Deeper is an anti-sade work. Deeper reads as much as a book than as it does as a film."

"In this case, the one of AMVK thus, art is no funny moment of aesthetic pleasure, but a confrontation with the underworld in one's own brain." — Marc Ruyters - Tijd Cultuur, 14 mai 2003
