This video installation records the melting of ice on the surface of a leaf. The white crystalline ice slowly melts upon exposure to warmer temperatures; at the same time, the leaf absorbs the water and gradually blackens,vanishing into the darkness. The work is based on the idea that video is essentially a means of measuring time.
(about 8 min., loop)
