BALAFRE


(2016 - 2017)



A rift, a scar, a slash, a way through...

Digital video with sound.

The images originate using the Louvre’s most highly-powered microscope, referencing meteoric material that composes the crown of an ancient demonic statue (Afghanistan, 3,000 BC) from the museum’s collection.

The sound is the hum of the universe from the hour of the gravitational wave detection, and the wave, coming to us across 1.3 billion years.
