Aurora traces the oxidation process of copper plates. Assmann treated the copper plates with a gas burner, and subsequently treated the surface with patina, due to which the range of colouring slowly changed. The hand of the artist is subordinate to the laws of nature:
the natural process of corrosion determines how the work will finally obtain its visual identity. Aurora is embedded in a context of visual music & expanded cinema and deals with a very slow, barely perceptible transition of, what Assmann calls, hypercolours, which are characteristic for her work and are brought forward by the light of the sun.
