In the course of a visit to the Château-Musée Grimaldi in Cagnes-sur-Mer, France, the artist finds herself in a room stacked with monitors on which Alexandra Reill is screened in real-time, unsolicited.

The photographs made on the occasion of this situation were taken in 2021, as part of a series of self-portraits that cover the period between autumn 2019 and spring 2022 in the form of a continuous, chronological self-documentation. As part of this work, all images included in the project were subjected to the same sequence of image editing.

The images included in the series SP19-22-monitoring evolved into an independent chronological order of images, from which the video loop was created; the layout is based on the pre-given specifications of the Apple’s screen saver called “Magazine”.
