The work The Line is part of the video series White. 

The human figure, the artist himself, is shown as a sign on the white surface without objects, set on the ground with no support, within a rectangular cut of the frame in the abstract field of the world of image. This loss of a "centre" is the loss of support - optical, moral, symbolic, or physical/material, manifested as a symbolic loss of ground under one's feet.
