The video which is going to play inside the chest of the sculpture is now ready. The idea behind including a video was born after considering the safety options of having an open fire (candle) during an actual event. Thanks to the video the process of melting – which represent the process of creating – is captured and processed to show fragments to the visitors. It is short and it is going to be put on loop during the showcase.
‘There are people who say they would like to see the last of craftsmanship because, as they conceive of it, it is essentially backward-looking and opposed to the new technology which the world must now depend on. For these people craftsmanship is at best an affair of hobbies in garden sheds; just as for them art is an affair of things in galleries. There are many people who see craftsmanship as the source of a valuable ingredient of civilisation. There are also people who tend to believe that craftsmanship has a deep spiritual value of a somewhat mystical kind.’ David Pye, The Nature and Art of Workmanship
