Descrizione Opera / Biografia

ARTWORK DESCRIPTION - The single channel video “Everyday” is an abstract meditation on the routines we follow everyday. Some of these repeated actions improve through time, such as playing the piano. While others such as driving the same road every day to work are repeated without individual benefit. Underlying these routines is an unconscious desire to do more to make up for the lost time of the repetitions. However, playing the piano faster does not make a better player and a daily commute is impossible to speed up. This conflict is explored against the serene backdrop of a shadow forest. We know we should slow down, but we can’t.
