Set to a mix of crumbling paper, "The Seasons" portrays a white on white room in which a slowly evolving sculptural figure gradually transforms. In this work, a seated woman in a pose of erotic abandon cycles clockwise on a rotating pedestal. As she cycles, she decomposes, a vine of roses surrounding her- blooming and then fading away. Bringing to mind the buttery visual language of a wedding cake decoration, the animation is set within a sterile room revolving counterclockwise, as a camera pans back and forth. These movements function in counterpoint, appearing only at the edge of our perception. All is in flux but time seems to stand still, as in life.
