In this installation, the last 10 minutes of Tobe Hooper's 1982 film "Poltergeist" are retold through projection onto a large table from a bird's eye view. Digitally recreated using the actual filming location in Simi Vally, California, all  movements seen on the ground are precisely timed to match the edit of the movie. While the mind follows the dramatic events on the ground, they are experienced from a distant subjective position and set a contrast to the tranquil atmosphere and vast surrounding scenery.
