The angel then disappears, leaving Mary overwhelmed, submerged in her emotions.
The angel is the bearer of God’s Word: he unveils the « Logos », origin of all things, to Mary. This revelation progressively transforms figurative representation into abstraction, overwhelming the entire screen.
By replacing the texture of a painting with the fine grain of film, the use of the analog medium reveals a pictorial dimension: the Angel becomes colour and light.
According to traditional representational codes of the Annunciation from the Quattrocento, the Angel Gabriel appears on the left side of the screen, whilst Mary occupies the right side, thereby forming a diptych, or even a triptych if one considers the surrounding landscape as part of the Divine creation.
