Installation, Ellen de Bruijne, Amsterdam
Drinking glass, glass bowl, bottle of Icelandic cod oil, candle,
pedestal, single-channel video projection, sound
Duration: 7:10 min
Glass objects and a candle are placed on a pedestal. A video beam hits the objects straight on and casts their shadows onto the wall behind. The outlines of the objects and the shadow of the smoke from the burning candle interact with an animated shadow of an imaginary ball, which dances from one object to the other. Like a flea, it jumps and flies from one object to the next. As it lands inside a bottle or touches the glass bowl we hear a sound of something knocking against the glass.
