In a barely noticeable way, vertical strips with shades of red move intermittently to the rhythmically snapping and crackling soundtrack by rashim (Yasmina Haddad and Gina Hell). The at times vague shadow of a twig appears through the strips of color. The work uses this radical reduction to create an enormous amount of tension. To achieve this result, Karø Goldt animated over two thousand digitally manipulated photographs of a leafless plant with red berries called ILOX.The influence of Color Field painters such as Mark Rothko and Ad Reinhardt on the filmmaker is obvious, whose work in this medium followed her involvement with painting and photography.

Although the sound and images were produced independently, the three artists successfully created a harmonic end result by employing lyric minimalism in both mediums. Karø Goldt and rashim have provided proof that consistently structured abstraction can be more gripping than any thriller.
