Dark Creature

Videowork, 2016, loop / 2 min 1 s, 16:9 full HD video, silent

The work depicts a front-view image of the face of an old woman. Her facial features grow animalistic and creature-like as the lighting begins to fade. Finally, her face disappears completely apart from a few shimmering points of light that are reflected in her eyes. After a while, the light grows brighter and the face returns, undergoing the same transformation in reverse from a creature into a human face.
