As if in meditative observance, the artist lights a candle in the silent atmosphere of the studio. The object stands upon a wall bracket designed by Philippe Safire. While the wax slowly burns, a projected animation appears on the wall. An endless list of names—Izabella, Vincente, Fyodor, David, Akira, Milos, Edward, and many more—emanates from the flame, trailed by curves and pixels. Candle is at once familiar and other worldly, merging natural and digital sources of light. The piece offers intimacy and space for reminiscence.
