Dirt going down

Denise Ziegler

The silent installation consists of a projected video image and a light box attached to the wall. In the video two sequences are repeated endlessly: the first shows the structured surface of a worn out marble and dirt particles gathering on the celluloid. The second sequence is from a construction site: dirt is shoveled out from the second floor window in to a yellow semi transparent rubbish chute.
