More Info Works / EN GARDE


Two fencers stand in their “en garde” positions, on guard, ready for the call to strike that never comes. The tension builds until one of them makes a move. At the moment of impact, the blade plunges into a pool of clear liquid that instantaneously freezes over from the hit, spreading out evenly from the impact point in crystalline forms. Nu metal music accompanies the little death.
