Also the series of drawings 'Black and White, which he created in between 1971 and 1974, which are part of the Art Collection Telekom, is an excellent example for the individuality of his artistic questioning. Part of the series are a few studies about extreme contraction of the image of person in a mirror. Over and above that, he employed the drawings for the creation of a short animated film. The film of roughly 140 seconds is literally the work of a true amateur. It is the document of an artistic experiment and must be considered as one of the very few independent animation movies of the time of the Ceausescu dictatorship.
