This is one of the most beautiful and mesmerising works that I saw yesterday at the Biennale. I ended up in the room by myself, and sat right in front of it watching it from start to finish several times. Just beautiful. the phrase ‘space/time continuum’ came to mind, but that doesn’t do it justice – i’m just a sci-fi geek and i can’t help it. The image doesn’t do it justice – if you get to see any Daniel Crooks video works in the ‘flesh’… DO IT!
