5. Artist's statement
Each frame of the video represents the colour of each and all pixel from left to right from the top pixel line to the bottom, as in the order of reading a book, from a public domain digital image of Vincent Van Gogh's Starry night (1767px x 1414px).
The total pixel count of the source image becomes the total frame count of the video. One pixel is shown for each frame in a darkened space.
