'Exercise 3 with ice'

Synopsis:

A performance to camera work. Through the medium of video, it offers a select view of the figures actions and how they evolve. The shifting and transformation of materials becomes symbolic for the state of flux that all relationships exist within. This is evident in the use of coloured ice.

The ice marks the disappearance of time yet leaves a residue that questions our understanding of the substance as temporary.
It highlights the fact that a transformation has happened yet a residue remains as a document.
