Hear the bottom noise






I had the opportunity to use a house slated for demolition for my art project. I started by stripping the inner walls to assess the house's condition. It became apparent that the pillars at the four corners were corroded, and only the concrete outer walls and a metal spiral staircase leading to the second floor supported the entire structure.
The sound of rotting wood chips falling as I struck the pillars and the violent shaking of the entire building when a truck passed in front of it filled me with a fear I rarely experienced. Yet, simultaneously, this fear heightened my senses, and I hoped to perceive something before the final, crucial moment arrived.
To that end, before the house was demolished, I installed an unstable structure resembling the condition of the pillars at the house's center. I then secured myself and my limbs to the structure with ropes, attempting to maintain balance and engaging in dialogue for several hours until the structure fell.
