Those three short videos are treated with different methods and technique. The Soap Clip consists of white chalk drawings on a blackboard recorded using a Hi-8 Handycam camera. The Long Way to my Studio consists of a doll filmed with a still camera and then animated and documents the daily path of the artist from his house to his studio in Cologne. The Door was made using a pencil drawing on paper directly scanned to computer producing a black & white video. The artist often displays his video works along with the actual drawings used to produce them, as well as other remnants. Each piece relates to insignificant details of daily life, such as transit or dealings with deliveries.
