In 1998 Thora Johansen, director of the Bifrons Foundation in Amsterdam, invited Henk Peeters to make a film for her Flash project that found its premiere with nine DVD’s in the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam in 1999. Peeters very soon came up with an idea of having a rain of white feathers coming down on a glass plate until this was completely covered with a layer of down. It was filmed in colour with a blue background, added with music of invited composer and guitarist Eric Calmes. For the second request to make also a very short film of one minute Henk Peeters decided to have the film in negative run backwards within the given sixty seconds.
