Mechanics of Capitalism (2017)
When seen in a pile, sand presents itself as uniformity: black sand, red sand, fine sand, coarse sand. But upon close inspection, even the most homogeneous manufactured sand disperses into individuality. When animated at this level of magnification, a single grain finds its own autonomy.
We find ourselves in a data-driven world where a human being is reduced to a point on a map or a digit in a statistic. This multi-media project attempts to reclaim the complexity of the individual human by matching social policy data and current events with intimate portraits of individual grains of sand.
