How Clouds are Formed | Aerial, Bergen
Electrical motor, installed objects & video
Installed as part of the durational symposium The Only lasting Truth is Change, 2021 convened by (BEK) Bergen Centre for Electronic Arts, Norway
This work is presented through video and a set of mechanical actions. It’s an exercise in thinking about processes that occur outside of us and how we can intervene in their happening by observing, recording and measuring. It contemplates how certain movements and the things that move them, occur or are interrupted and the alternative ways we can think about them.
The installation presented in Bergen is assembled by Emilie Wright following Karuti´s drawings, sketches, and instructions; produced by Jackie while developing another version of this weather instrument in Nairobi. The two versions are not identical. The artwork then becomes not the object, but the (mechanical) action that performs a senseless/impossible task.
