The videos of van Eijk has their point of departure with the origin of the video signal that is processed digital or analog depending on the artists current working environment.
During his residencies at Signal Culture the works are purely analog, composed with machinery from the seventies,while in Oslo the compositions are defined within a sophisticated computer from the late nineties. The camera input is broad, ranging from investigation of the human body to nature motifs, further on to abstract patterns from within the analog or digital machinery without any camerainput.
