"Visions" is a compilation of twelve videos produced between 1982 and 1992. Yvonne Oerlemans says about her work: "The TV monitor is like my head - equiped with an X-ray screen on which I make my thoughts visible. The video recorder and the magnetic cassette are metaphors for the way in which my brain functions. My work deals with common human concepts. I try to express the essence of being, in basic sign-language. In several works, one can find reflexions on polarity, with the focus on different psychological areas. I often use the triangle and the number three as a form and symbol of unity and balance."

"Visions" est une compilation de 12 bandes produites entre 1982 et 1992.
Yvonne Oerlemans dit au sujet de son oeuvre : "L'écran de contrôle est comme ma tête équipée d'un écran à rayons X sur lequel je rends mes pensées visibles. Le magnétoscope et la bande magnétique sont des métaphores du fonctionnement de mon cerveau. Mon oeuvre porte sur des concepts humains courants. Je tente d'exprimer l'essence de l'être en utilisant un language de signes de base. Dans plusieurs de mes oeuvres, on peut retrouver des réflexions sur la polarité, concentrée sur des sphères psychologiques diverses. J'utilise fréquement le triangle ainsi que le chiffre trois comme une forme et un symbole d'unité et d'équilibre."
