The starting point for ONE is a video taken with a mobile phone in Kowloon, Hong Kong.
The camera has not been able to capture the original view, and the resulting video contains only mystical glitch. What causes the glitch? What is the moment or subject that was originally attempted to be documented? Is there a huge planet or a tiny cell in the video? Perhaps it is something else – a human or even God?
The soundscape of ONE is homage to big questions, a mash-up of 1960’s sci-fi cinema soundtracks.

Moths flew inside my studio after the video projector's light in the countryside of Wiepersdorf. Spiders ate them. After I cleaned the floor and threw them outside, I noticed that one started to move by itself against the wind. As I looked down, I noticed an ant carrying the corpse back towards the grassfield and forest where it originally had come from. The soundtrack consists of field recordings including birds singing, and the sounds of an ant colony walking over dry leaves accompanied by looping piano chords?
