Vliegsimulator | 2006

I was sitting on my couch watching TV and a fly landed on my chest. I whacked it and by my great surprise I actually caught it. I didn’t kill it though, and could just softly hold it between my index-finger and thumb. I had a small digital camera with me and I made a short video of the fly flying through my living-room, in a perspective that resembles that of what you see when you play a flight-simulator. The focus lies on the little insect and the background is blurred, becoming an impressionist play of light and color.
