Time machine

This kinetic art piece unfolds as a rigorous hour-long skipping routine, during which the skipper gradually expends their energy. Adjacent to them, a companion occupies a position, armed with tubes through which water is blown, ultimately leading to the drenching of the skipper. The skipping rope collides with an aged glass oil lamp, producing both flames and an intensified atmosphere within the immediate environment. This artwork, rooted in motion and physicality, employs a satirical approach to undermine and ridicule ritualistic performance actions. By subverting conventional expectations and norms associated with such rituals, this piece challenges the perceived seriousness and solemnity often attributed to ritualistic practices within the realm of art.
