Eat Sand

A pearl is the beautiful outcome of an unintended mistake; we might as well start eating sand then. What I mean is, defects attune on account of their disruption.

Growing up I felt this need to achieve perfection. Nothing ever felt good enough, regardless of recognition. More often than not, it still doesn’t. It wasn’t until I understood that it was the flaws that made every piece of work perfect for me, that I realized I do not want to thrive for formal standards of perfection.

‘Eat Sand’ is my first 16mm experimental film; and showcases an eager intention to work with error and the unsettled nature of light –both recurrent subjects in the context of my artwork. I shot, developed and copied the film myself and carefully thought out ways in which I could introduce error intentionally in every stage of the process. Error is pursued, but –just as is– can’t be controlled.
