Verbeek’s videos from the early 1990s, such as Interferenz and Continuum, are considered classics of structural video of a younger generation and oscillate between mobility and standstill and the static moment of a uniform process. Continuum shows detail shots of an escalator. The continuous and rhythmified movement is charged in metaphorical terms to “lively creature captured in its system.”
