Image and sound – two separate and different senses. When you cover your ears the image becomes "mute" when you shut your eyes the sound becomes "blind". One is not able to see the sound of the image and to hear the picture. There is a feeling that the image and the sound are not aware of each other's existence. When the sound echoes away only accordion remains and it can't tell anything about the dying sound and place of its whereabouts. It seems as if I am all alone among both the phenomena because the sound doesn't come from the viewed image. The most important thing is to maintain the conductor within me who silently brings the invisible sound into the landscape of my personal vision.
