Deconstruction of Film  – Titanic, Die Hard, Jungle Book, Matrix, Forrest Gump, Pulp Fiction, Pretty Woman, Back to the Future, Fight Club, etc.: iconic films that have become deeply embedded in the collective memory of society, of a particular (cultural) space and time period.

Mainstream is often used with a negative connotation, but in the most positive sense it creates a collective memory and thus becomes, even decades later, a strong link between the individuals of a society. The series on velvet fabric shows iconic scenes from blockbuster films.

Scenes that everyone knows and that are symbolic of the whole film – whether you have seen it or not. Even in total blur, like a distant memory, the viewer can add the colour fields back to the film scene stored in his or her memory.
