As far as it goes

Marcus Lerviks

This three-part video installation builds tension through a javelin appearing to fly from one monitor to the other. Between the two monitors there is a projection of power cables, as filmed from a moving train. The starting point of the work comes from the will to go on, as seen through sports.
