C-19. Video Loop 1min,23sec Sound B&W 2020.
In a year (2020) under the COVID-19 pandemic and in a year of self-isolation and introspection, and in a year of understanding how fragile are the systems that society is currently built upon i produce a video as metaphorical examination of the current situation under the pandemic.
The sound of the piece is a medical sound recorder of the lungs of a COVID-19 patient when he is breathing in a hospital, the visual part in slow motion is a group of people that have collapse one over the other and try to breathe, escape and survive under the pressure that one receives from the other. The original footage in my work is from archive material, whith i have processed.
This work investigates and explores the relationship between the individual and the group's behavior, how they exist coexist and interact.
