Scope:
Includes 2" masters and original footage, Betacam SP and D3 preservation masters, and VHS and 3/4" screening copies. What appears to be the complete master lacks screen credits.

This work features an elaborate play of sound, color and light. Abstract images manipulated into a tunnel effect seem to carry the viewer deeper and deeper into the space of the monitor. Some existing footage is incorporated, including the surface of a body of water. This work appears to have been divided into several sections, including "Prelude" and "The Love Death."

The music is Richard Wagner's "Tristan and Isolde."
