RELENTLESS LONGING

FIRST VIDEO 2007

Description: Stopmotion film

Materials: Wood, clay, fabric

 

Concept: The stop motion film represents the poetry of “Ashes to ashes, dust to dust” The phrase comes from the funeral service in the Book of Common Prayer, and it is based on Genesis 3:19, Genesis 18:27, Job 30:19, and Ecclesiastes 3:20. Those passages say that we begin and end as dust.

The work contemplates over the endless perpetual motion of the circle of life and death.
