'Elevator' is a new media/conceptual installation related to the human emotion of anger and its visualization to an artistic output. It was conceived & realized by Bill Psarras on 2008-2009 as well as constituted his practice-based BA thesis at the department of AudioVisual Arts - Ionian University (Greece). This short documentary is a presentation of its conceptual and audiovisual context.
"Anger can be perceived as a kind of alchemy. The rude and primitive is transformed to something useful and intellectual. The artistic perception acts like a human cell. Elevator pushes this line to the margins of this cell by seeking for a way of connection between the meanings of beauty and disgusting, between the known and the unknown, between the flower and the thorn, between outer an inner – ‘eso’. Why anger then? " [Bill Psarras, 2009]
The artist would like to thank Dr. Andreas Floros and Marianna Strapatsakis for their valuable help & support.
