Absent Minded Monotonous Splendor, 2010, digital video, 3 minutes, 30 seconds
A video project that animates the erasure and ultimate explosion of a portrait. Over the course of the animation, a face is swallowed by an unknown force. What is left are only ‘imperfections’ (wrinkles, moles, blemishes and stray hairs); eventually they become animated and explode into their own galaxy. The audio is appropriated from the History Channel’s series “The Universe”.
