A precisely focused reflection on the role of context in evaluating images from conflict zones. Accompanied by gentle alienating music, we observe a girl as she screams and persistently gestures threateningly, but at first the context of the entire situation is imperceptible. Gradually her surroundings are revealed, first her point of view, until we finally see the situation in full, including the object of her wrath. 

The outline of the girl, carved out by an algorithm that follows the edges of her figure, is an unsettling image reminding us of the vastness of the surroundings, which are obscured in the mediated image, even though we may need them to interpret what is visible.



A radiant, energetic girl is shouting and punching the space in front of her. She is roughly cut out from her surroundings by a computer algorithm struggling to contain her. Her enemies are rubbed off the frame, sound is removed and music added, emphasising her anguish and anger. Is she real? Is she a dream? Gradually, more fragments of the scene are revealed.
