Black Book is a video that the artist accidentally filmed at a coach station in 2010. According to what the devouted old woman was soliloquising, that is a religious book. The twisted PVC pipe resembles the developed pineal gland of religious believers. The video is projected onto the ground covered with silica gel. The sneak shot or peek, like God's watch, waits for the confrontation between humanity and divinity.
