This article focuses on analysis and interpretation of Bill Viola’s The Passing. The author of the article deals with autobiographical aspects of the work, but also tries link them to the most important topics of Viola’s previous works. In The Passing the American artist explores the problem of perception – one of the most crucial motives in his career. Andrzej Pitrus looks at the balance between emotional and “conceptual” aspects of the work and discusses this with other authors who tried to interpret the video. Viola’s work is presented as the most personal work of the artist.
