EXTENDER: The camera travels through the garden, glides by tree trunks, bushes, arms and legs. energy balls itself up in quivering tendons and blood vessels, skin stretches on ribs, knees and throat. a small, faint scar in the bend of the knee, deeply-creased bark on silver, shimmering trees. a woman glides by in the glow of a flashlight. Somewhere the EXTENDER: who or what it is, one does not know. The images follow the lines of association and rhythm of the music of Knut and Silvy and spin the thread further. The images do not have to narrate. They rise to the surface like memories of a dream. Text elements merge and revolve like unclear fragments of thoughts. The images vibrate, are always in movement. They depict the view of a restless, eerie state.
