In her videos, Gross refers to popular works of art history, such as The Scream, by Edvard Munch, or Happy Tears, by Roy Lichtenstein. Through computer animations, Gross amplifies the intense emotional quality inherent to these pictures, allowing such very distinct aspects to dissociate themselves from their source and become independent.

As a result, our perception of the work of art is no longer the same but is instead transformed ­ through a process, through which the artist forces us to break with habitual viewing patterns, thus permitting a new view of the work.
