In the dunes of the Belgian seaside town of Koksijde a bunker from World War II is with great deal of sense for detail transformed into a giant inkpot. This early video work is a collaboration between the utopian architect Luc Deleu, painter Filip Francis and the group ‘de nieuwe coloristen’ (translated as ‘the new colorists’). The film is a time-lapse account of their performance, the register of recording rises as a result of inserting items including animation and images of a snow-covered Brussels during the editing.
