Awe II

2+1 AP Video, Digital Photograph, 2023 (re-presentation)

The single-channel video work draws attention effortless movement of nature within itself
and to the cycle of existence and consists of two separate images. While on the left side we
see traces of human destruction, on the other side we watch the transformation of animals
and nature within themselves.

  • We pass through the strange door at the entrance to the forest. There are only bird
    sounds. The rustling of the trees also accompanies the bird sounds. We’re getting out
    of the car. Our footsteps get involved too. I take a step, I hear a bird noise. I am
    heading in the direction of the birds’ voices. My eyes look for the birds, but I can’t see
    them. I’m getting closer to the sound, I still can’t see it. As I take a step, the sounds
    get closer and the image disappears.

“ Now the earth was corrupt in God’s sight and was full of violence. God saw how corrupt the
earth had become, for all the people on earth had corrupted their ways. So God said to
Noah, “I am going to put an end to all people, for the earth is filled with violence because of
them. I am surely going to destroy both them and the earth.” (Genesis: 6:11)
