EVOLUTION/REVOLUTION

← Return to Program Page

Synopsis: The declaration “Nothing Is Lost, Nothing Is Created, Everything Is Transformed” appearing at the beginning of the video has a double meaning: it refers to recycling as theme and strategy in the artistic process while also referring to the notion of the golem, which is a being created from inanimate matter used by its creator to perform a task. The animation highlights performative relationships between the creator and the created, and this applies even in the use of sound, where mundane objects lying around the studio and my own body produced the rhythms and noises of the animation.
