Cristina Pavesi (Italy) – Stability Tests 2, 2015, 02’30”
Some stability tests where elements are added in search of balancing against instability.
Construction and destruction in simple alternation, one leads to the other seamlessly.
The lightness, the shine, the silver reflections and sampled sounds of cans alternate and overlap in a play that could be an infinite loop.
Simple cans compose a still life as a classical painting could be, but movements and sound are added in search of effects of lightness in a precarious and alienating balance.
