RGB investigates phenomena of red, green and blue, the basic colours of the electronic image. In these three colours there is a manifestation of energetic processes, the passages from one situation to another, as well as metamorphoses, form the circle of being and disappearing, of movement. Energetic shifting of natural circles in other form.
"Artists creating video and audio work to be streamed online have to bear the limitations of the media (bandwidth, codecs, buffering etc) very much in mind during the creation of their work. They have to work with, rather than against, the characteristics of the media. This creates all sorts of interesting challenges, and the resulting works can tell us more about streaming media as a creative medium. In the work 'RGB' by Heiko Daxl for instance, we see an artist working with the jerky movement and limited colour handling of the media, to create a piece which seems perfectly adapted to low-band delivery. Similiarly, in Lev Manovich's 'Little Movies Vol.1: microcinema: cinema for the early Net',"

The video is based on the composition "Waltz" by the contemporary Croatian composer Igor Kuljeric. The video consists of rhythmically edited abstract images, which create a specific type of auditive, movable graphic images.
