"Limits of a Function"

2 hours, 53 minutes, single channel video, 2015


Below are clips from a video in which a single sheet of paper is folded, unfolded and refolded until it falls apart, 1 hour and 41 minutes later. Nothing specific is ever constructed throughout the single shot, and there is often a sense of uncertainty in the movement of the hands. Once the paper falls apart, the video repeats in reverse, and it becomes unclear if time is moving forward or in reverse; if the goal is construction of deconstruction.
