At undisclosed intervals, a small amount of black dust travels slowly through the air, delicately collected on a copper plate. As a relic of what used to be, of time and time gone by, the collected dust reminds us of our own vulnerability, vanity and contemporality, and by doing so, it reminds us of life.
As such, the work materialises time in its most confronting presence: as the ceaseless movement where tings appear and disappear, exist and cease to exist. But it also provides moments as autonomous entities, detached from goals or concerns, that could be habitable spaces by themselves, measuring nor directing.
