untreated wood, hd camera, cotton bandage



... hungry for the past life,
but still alive
- for a moment -
to saturate completely different world of subjective excesses
through its inorganic medium
but staying absorbed by greater destination...



Description: a piece of untreated found wood was sculpted and temporary conserved together with hd camera with the help of cotton bandage and at its native place to serve the video-as-medium. The artist touches and holds revived object, using mediative technic to bring the object to balance, the sculpture performs its movement. The camera, as part of the sculpture, records the action performing by the object and the artist. After the record was finished, the sculptured object was released from bandage to its native state - untreated wood, and into its native location.
