One more kilometre

Posted filed underSweden, Video Art, Videos.


John Wood and Paul Harrison have been working collaboratively since 1993 producing single screen and installation based video works. Their work investigates the relationship between the human figure and architecture, developed through short form video with particular emphasis on actions being formulated and resolved within a given duration.

In “One more kilometre”, Paul Harrison stands by a sanding machine in front of a pile of paper. The amount of paper would measure one kilometre if all the sheets were laid out. When the artist starts the sanding machine, the sheets of paper fly away across the floor.
