As darkness sets in, a window becomes a portal to the previous day. What appeared to be an opening to the outside slowly reveals itself to be a window into the past. As the illusion breaks down, a tension emerges between surface and screen, inside and outside, past and present. A solitary being surfaces, masked by the elements that surround him.

Nico Herbst relocated from NYC to attend the MFA program at UCSD in 2006. Recent screenings/exhibitions include European Media Art Festival, Osnabruek, Germany, Stageworks/Hudson, NY, and Santa Fe Art Institute, NM. New work will be seen this spring at La MaMa E.T.C., NYC, in collaboration with Triple Shadow.
