An interpretation of the video work Zip by Wright & Van 't HoogWright & Van 't Hoog explore the orchestration of short video sequences to form abstract time based compositions. The edited video is constructed from short video observations of daily phenomena. Lifting video observations from their normative context and composing them in both harmonic and incongruous juxtaposition asks the viewer to look more closely at the incidental visual poetry held in these simple observations of daily phenomena.  The video sequences have been orchestrated to generate a tightly constructed interplay between colour harmonics, rhythmic movement and spatial readings which lifts the observations to a highly abstracted exchange. The cropping, framing and timing of the video sequence effectively generates a ‘concrete art’ animation.
