Consider a rotation, as the engine of a car: it has a function and works. However, no rotation is exactly equal to the one that precedes it - there is a fixed mechanic but exact repetition is impossible - something is lost in each spin, external contamination shapes it in slow uninterruptible layers. Such is the nature of information: It can never be permanently stored, we try to tame and understand the earth, but it is the earth who eats you - who ages you, who controls your appetite. We are a too-short-lenght-factor that the time uses as fertilizer. When all the concepts reach a silent end, the worms will feed on knowledge.
This piece presents two short segments of analog video, composed by two distinct movements - one shot in the desert with dried sand (B&W) , other with fresh earth(colour). They are played through a prepared vhs player that loops them, disintegrating their original quality through the course of the exhibition.
