Object & Performance
generator, bulb, electric cable, plug, fuel

Sound, light alteration and fragrance are important parts of the work

A bulb is placed on the ceiling of the exhibition room and the plug is connected to the generator. The performance starts in the dark room by pulling the starter rope of the engine. The engine runs, but after a while it stagnates little by little and so does the light. The bulb starts to pulse while the room gets progressively filled with exhaust fumes. After two minutes, the engine breaks down and with it the light switches off. The room is dark again.
