Gravity Monster

‘Gravity monster’ is a video of a white scarf that has been charged by static electricity. A hand coming down from above feeds pieces of wool to the ‘hungry’ scarf. The scarf moves towards the hand until it becomes electric enough. The hand continues as long as the scarf has the strength to hold the threads. The charge discharges slowly and the once alert scarf is flat by the end.
