Under the Dead Sea, 2005
Video, 4:08 min
Under the Dead Sea was shot a few meters lower than the lowest place on earth. This salt lake has never been seen or filmed from bellow. A cord of 250 meters penetrates 500 watermelons forming a six meter floating spiral raft. The sweet spiral of fruit turns as a whirlpool re-versed from its normal direction. My body is locked inside the layers between the center and the periphery of the red and green raft. The spiral gradually becomes a thin green line abandoning vision. As part of "The Endless Solution" I also used the rapid fossilization that occurs to objects in these waters - all is transformed within weeks into the same clutter of salt crystals as seen in this video, on the sea bed.
