Three Rooms

  • The three-part video installation Three Rooms shows three archetypical domestic environments, that during the course of each film, dissolve leaving only a series of voided spaces.

    The environments were constructed in paraffin to make the detailed models of each room. When placed into a heated solvent solution, the paraffin melts like ice in warm water, changing the environments from a solid to a liquid form. Objects which are thin disappear gradually.

     

    Other, thicker objects whose mass is unevenly distributed, involve a process of falling over and breaking before they, too, disappear. The furniture is reduced almost infinitely slow,

    until nothing but an empty room remains.
