Roots 

OBU Degree Show, May 2018

Two performance video documentations

 

The video displayed on the left shows the durational documentation of the digging of a hole with my hands over the space of five months. The video on the right shows the documentation of a private performance, displaying an intimate interaction with the soil. The figure shapes the soil and the landscape by digging, shoving and lying in it.

A personal exploration about reintroducing, rediscovering and redefining my relationship to nature as a way to define my existence.

Roots 3.0

November, 2017

 

Capturing the process of digging soil, immersing myself into the practice of animal burrowing.

Regaining an ancestral familiarity

with what is beneath our feet

something that is not lost

but simply forgotten
