The image could be a conventional photograph, because there is nothing spectacular to see here: a house in a forest. But Sasse transforms the red house in the anonymous photograph into an oversized object whose enormous color intensity stands in stark contrast with the dark-green of the forest, and makes the simple scene appear surreal. As titles, Sasse uses only a four-figure combination of digits and the respective production date, namely the year in which the found material was post-processed.
