Nature Morte #3

Digital Installation

Computer, electronics, video monitor, wood, sound.

 

First, there is a video monitor.

The image you see is a still live with a cup of coffee, an ashtray with a smoking cigarette, part of a lighter and a cigarette-case. These elements are on a table with a romantic print of flowers and leaves.

When a visitor approaches the work, the cup starts to tremble with a jingling sound, as if the visitor causes a small, local earthquake.

Here eddie d uses a kind of 'closed interactivity’ where the visitors unknowingly and unintentionally influences the unfolding of the work, however they cannot change the events or work itself.

It is work number three in the series of digital installations in which d explores the still life, with video as his favorite medium.
