2. Candle Piece
After Nic Collins' "In Memoriam", I was inspired to make a musical circuit which responds to flame. I waited until I found the perfect candles— 5 minute long candles—which provided a concise narrative arc for this circuit.
I gave myself several limitations with this one: make the sculpture as small as possible, make it silent in darkness, and don't do anything besides light the damn candle. we filmed 7 takes, and finally got lucky with this lazarus candle. The original cut is 8 minutes long—incredibly, it kept coming back to light, to life.
