The author tries to comprehend video as painting. The main feature of a painting is  flatness or two-­dimensionality. In classical landscapes, artists tried to solve the problems  of relations and subdominance of three-­dimensional space to two-­dimensional space, Spatial  views were then of great importance – close­up view, mid­-distance view, far­-distance  view. In Alena’s work the text becomes information load which once corresponded with  every view of the image. The moving text in the video is borrowed from a real love letter,  but it carries no real information but rather draws a graphic boundary between space  views than carries any specific information.
