In 'Loss of hearing' the scenery is solely introduced by the use of light and sound. As the narration is placed in a white cube environment, stereotypical plot lines are being stylized and uncovered by an ironical undertone.

As the MANAGER WOMAN doesn't feel loved anymore, she tries to gain control over the MANAGER MAN. The MANAGER MAN is tired of these games and has affairs to escape from the pressure. Meanwhile the young and confused TWO SISTERS are planning a surf career and hang out with creepy guys in the surf shop.

'Loss of hearing' comments with caricature, provocation and irony on the loss of sense and emotion in mass media productions. Behind that level of irony the video work reveals a deep-seated romanticism.
