Note / MvW: ‘I once saw a photo of a pool champion in an American newspaper. I wanted to recreate that. It had to be something that is motionless and moving simultaneously.’ The film loop shows a pool player standing with a cue in his hand, waiting. While the man looks straight ahead, occasionally a pool ball rolls past.
