Arun Sharma (USA 1978, lives in Seattle). ‘(De)composition, Untitled III’ . This is a print from a 60 minutes video showing the slow decay of an unfired ceramic bust of the artist.
From the site:” (it) is a visual representation of the breakdown of the human form. The video of the clay bust slowly disintegrating in a pool of water has a quiet, meditative quality to it. The slow-falling flakes of clay and the floating tendrils of clay fog create a spiritual, calming element that the artist has not often associated with the idea of death. At the end of the hour long video, the falling debris creates a fog that eventually envelopes the head, signifying the way we are slowly forgotten in the memory of the living and are lost in history.”
