About this video
As only artist and designer Daniel Eatock could describe it: Passed to you, from one to the next, like a chain, catenary, a dog chasing its tail, a loop, self support, half way to half way, everything unraveled, completely covered, removed, camouflaged, trompe l’œil, illusion, rotating, echo, echo, rotating, scrolling, half way in duration not distance, best before yesterday, extra medium, between on and off, between up and down, between a surface, align, a line, correction, from frustration, balance, colapse, reorientation, upside down, objective, givens, surface area squared, together, back to the beginning, passed to me.
