In 20 Little Steps
In 20 little Steps is a scaled down version of in 20 steps a tribute to the human desire to be able to fly, despite the force of gravity and the poetry of persistence in the face of adversity.
DRIFT is intrigued by the continuous attempts of humankind to deal with its limitations, so miraculously opposed to nature as these ventures might be. Humankind has always had the desire to fully understand nature and to detach itself from earthly ties. No matter how far science has come, some things are likely to remain forever out of reach.
In 20 Little Steps is a spatial kinetic installation, constructed of 20 delicate glass wings that represent all the different steps of flying in an abstract way. At the same time, the piece captures flight in a single moment. The glass emphasizes the fragility of the movement and of nature itself. The moving glass breaks the natural light in the space and reflects it in moving rays.
In 20 Little Steps, by DRIFT has been released at the Fog art fair 2017 San Fransisco with Pace Gallery.
