Project



Heartbeat



Ecology, Environmental problems, Criticism of the Anthropocene


Pulsation of the planet, its health. What is it? Has human activity affected or caused harm, and somewhere deep in the bowels is a painful wound? Or maybe everything is fine.

Key question of this project is: humanity is a mild cold or a deadly disease?

I gained the courage and audacity to explore my patient Earth through art.

I listened to the earth with a stethoscope. I heard so many sounds on the ground that my head was spinning. Human voices, the rumble from a distant freeway, the movement of insects, underground water, footsteps, knocks, and thousands of other sounds — that’s what I heard. Nature and inanimate. So many different sounds have formed into one heartbeat of the Earth.


Performance is documented on video. Video duration is almost 5 minutes.
