Draught, 2002

sandstone, video
40x23x29 cm, 0'27" loop

A detail of a curtain was carved into a regular block of sandstone, and then I reshaped the object millimetre by millimetre as a draught slowly made the curtain flap about. In the film the initial and last phases were merged into each other, and with the introduction of a short still the movement became continuous. As a result, there is a contrast between the solidity of the sculpture and its motion on the video.
