An improvement in the mode of producing an artificial sculpture, 2016

HD Video, 00:00:04s (continuous loop)
4 part serialised work


An improvement in the mode of producing an artificial sculpture, 2014, is a project made up of four extremely short looping films, compiled from limited still photographs in natural light conditions.

Encapsulating the rythmic cycles between the sun light and the formations, the films were made to explore the scale and depth of sculptural objects on screen; the rotating perspective allowing the structures to be understood with an explicit sense of depth perception. The project works towards physicality, yet there is a falseness, because it is an artificial stone, an artificial scale and exists in an intangible digital format.

Originally commissioned by Femke Oortwijn for an independent online project, this work is in part a response to the 1964 film Bassae by Jean-Daniel Pollet (watch).
