A Twisting Column

Duration 6’40”

 

An Ionic pillar supports a high space. The pillar slowly rotates on its base, transforminging its long, straight lines into spirals.

A pillar is a support, a a provider of safety – it is a symbol of power. By giving it this twist, the question immediately arises how power in society is dealt with. Are the pillars we trust as firm and reliable as we think? Can one pillar support everything? What twist is needed to keep one’s power?
