In 2000 I realized my 4.20 minutes long video with 29 persons who tell my short abstract poem in 32 languages. A simple solution of coming together! Something small, simple but very interesting. I didn't really know this in the time when I made this video but now I know, I gave people a good feeling - they said in theirs native languages my verses like:
"4 corners 3 people 3 people filled 4 corners!"
On May 17th, 2001 this video was shown for the 1st time in the gallery Artestade, FL-Vaduz and later in 2002 in Taman Budaya Yogyakarta, Indonesia.
