Like the strings in the Byzantine Variations by Romanian composer Paul Constantinescu that accompany this audiovisual sonata, the images of a landscape passing outside the window of a moving train, a road, a house, and a hand shaping the imaginary landscape of childhood in a pile of sand strewn on a tabletop, adhere to and permeate each other.


Constantin Flondor (1936), painter, sculptor, teacher, and experimenter. Co-founder of the groups Prolog, Sigma, and 1.1.1., which dealt with interdisciplinary visual research. He lives and works in Timisoara.
