The Cave with a Wheeze

Lau Ching-wa (Hong Kong)
In a stop-motion animation on a 2 x 3 m2 wall, Lau drew one after another carbon-black being with charcoal, walking from edge to centre. Depicted, documented and erased – Lau repeated with each being until the wall was filled in black. She then wiped the charcoal with hands to revert the wall to white. The clock reflects the time in reality, in parallel to the condensed time in the animation.
