An endling is an individual animal that is the last of its species or subspecies. Once the endling dies, the species becomes extinct. In this living installation I was lying on the rocky path , slithering backwards in an extreme Slow-Motion , eventually leaving trace behind me. For this particular piece , I was also inspired by a phenomenon called ‘’ Sailing Rocks ‘’ characteristic for the Death Valley ,Eastern California , where rocks move and inscribe long tracks along a smooth valley floor without human or animal intervention. ENDLING basically would be a site specific living installation related to the concept of Extinctive Species. Cynically enough , I shall consider myself as the last individual ´´animal´´of my species which is about to extinct.
