Jonito Aerts Arguelles (photography master) researches the positive afterimage, that is the image which briefly lingers on the retina after a flash of light. It is beyond reach and ephemeral. Arguelles designs experiments that revolve around this phenomenon, well knowing that the research might never come to an end. Ezra Veldhuis (fine arts master) creates paintings that use the universe as a starting point. Though she's well aware of the inherent vanity of this endeavor, each time she tries to capture something of this overwhelming and abstract beyondness that is the universe. Both Ezra and Jonito are aware of the impossibility of any conclusive results.
