This image: an egg frying black in a slightly messy place kept returning to my thoughts about my short-slash-net-docu. A “one framing film” is a slash in reality, a format I love. In itself this is a cut into time – or a cut-out. I stage my curiosity and explore an egg frying black – self-anthropological. Music is composed by the realsound of this one framing. Will people want to take off the egg?

 

The net is documents of different formats and info-levels overlapping each others in a multidimensional virtual space – docu is too >document< and to document.

 

The typewriter-words in different levels and directions refelct information on the net – info docs that are not totally read or readable, sliding into and over other info – “unfinished” or never ending documents about eggs; nutrition, tips, fried egg with or without fat or microwave eggs. Pick up lines here and there, go in one direction then the other. Html signs for line break and ‘place beside image’ reflect the forming of information on the net. The image itself becomes a graphical item buildt up on informations.

 

The net is also the cage of the hen which delivered the egg from her computer screen size space.

 

‘My bonnie is over the ocean’: the gap and connection between two – at least the one feels strongly connected and misses the other. This is crucial for the egg and the hen physically and philosophically. It also characterizes the net: gap and connection – long distances. An egg somehow symbolizes origin – here origin is treat within a slash framing of reality.
