The whole work is made up with four small installations and four screens. Each set of installation has a black and white forest photograph as its background and a drip pot with dripping transparent liquid. In front of the background and the drip pot, there is a small camera which records the installation and projects the video on the screen on the right side. Because of the differences of the positions of the drip pots, the speed of the liquid in the drip pots, the lightness of the photographs and the resolution of the camera, each video presents a different scene but with similar elements. The negative films are hard to recognize because of the method of using them, and the liquid in the drip pots is used as filters. With that in mind, the audiences can easily see how the installations effect the video in different ways.
