Project Statement
A carpet sweeper was used to collect dust from the departure lounge of numerous airports (JFK, Frankfurt and Perth) gathering the fragments left behind by people in transit.
The strokes of the carpet sweeper bring these isolated fragments together, weaving them into a single form. A composite of different things, spaces and times that eventually becomes a dust clump. Relegated to one object, the combined dust is an enforced grouping through circumstance, where every fiber is stripped of its history and identity and generically labeled as dust.
Macro videography, is used to slowly track across the dust revealing it as a landscape.
