Mattes are used in film postproduction as a tool, that allows separation of two layers of visual
information. Ussualy Alfa channel is used to transfer these masks. A matte is recorded as a black-and-white picture. A white pixel means that the relevant pixel in the image layers under the mask is visible, a black one means it is invisible. Therefore mattes are never visible themselves. In the case of this video, mattes have become the main characters. Even though moving image was reduced to its minimum, it still provokes emotions and imaginations.
