Reinhard Spieler, Horizonte, Bern 2003, 42-47In his video „triphibious construction“ Piero Steinle adresses the notion of image and pictoriality ....in a complex constellation of nature, artificiality and art. In a loop, that lasts 40 minutes the viewer is confronted with the self-same sequence that is repeated over and again: A swimmer steadily covers lane after lane of a swimming pool that has been built into the sea. However it is not the action of the swimmer that is crucial to the effect, but rather the architectural and precise structuring of the picture. Steinle divided the picture of his take into three identical strips that run parallel to the picture plane. ...the three bands could be taken for a completely abstract picture, a painterly construction in various shades of blue and grey.
