The camera observes the shadow of a Kentia palm which appears and reappears on the wall according to changing light. On the voiceover Nicol considers “the authority of a true representation” in nature and technology. Nicol's voice moves haltingly, accompanied by the sound of ballpen on paper. Early in the video Nicol's words are anticipated by a faint and premature echo. Towards the end of the video, still images of the camera apparatus are intercut between the image of the palm shadow. The final image is a still of Nicol pointing the video camera at a subject outside the frame. It is accompanied by a harsh tone of feedback. The video ends.
