Un/Folding

2015

Un/Folding (2015) is a multi-medial installation consisting of a video, book, and laser-printed sheet of wood.

My video Un/Folding (2015) was created for the project Remember Nature initiated by Gustav Metzger and CSM. The work refers to the traditional act of harvesting in groups and the related communication between human beings and nature. The rise of industries such as machine engineering and beverage industry affected individual agriculture in the 60s/70s, and the individual and culture. The video shows a repetitive action performed in apathy, referring to the mental state of distress: Solastalgia. This is a condition resulting in extreme environmental changes.
It was first exhibited at the exhibition 'Remember Nature' initiated by Gustav Metzger in collaboration with Serpentine Galleries at CSM London, the MA Art and Science exhibition, Elthrone Studios CSM, and at the Anthropocene Exhibition at CSM, Kings Cross.
