The documentation does not accurately show the viewers experience within the piece, as the imagery is constructed by using the high rotational speed of the projector to cause its CRT to oscan a different portion of the wall for each field of video. This deconstructed video image is then very difficult for a video camera to reconstruct, however, the eye with its persistence of vision, sees the whole interior of the room as a continuous video image made up of 12 distinct frames of video, making the video screen completely encircle the viewer.
