Untitled 2002
video installation, BETA SP 0:37 2002

The project depicts free falling from the height of 9 meters that is similar to diving or jumping into water but instead of water there is earth that swallows the artist. During preparing for the action I had to go through a special training that consisted of rope climbing, water jumping. A hole was dug in earth and filled with cartoon boxes. The surface was covered with grass for hiding the hole. The action was accompanied by a special sound that is synchronous with falling and vanishing into the earth. The project is dedicated to my dead brother.

Projection size: 4 x 3 meters, screen has to start from the ground
