A static camera pointing at the seaside renders a slit-scan sequence of the very same point on the horizon for a full week (24 hours, 7 days). By assembling the raw material (that just moves in time) back into single images, a "virtual" seaside landscape is constructed. Animating this material to video creates a unique time-lapse sequence of a seascape that tangles the relations of space and time.
