Grain of Salt
Site-specific video art piece for projections for Staro Riga Festival of Lights as a part of Riga 2014, European Capital of Culture Program.
In a poetic and expressive aesthetical style the mapping projection uses grain of salt as metaphor that conveys important meanings by few means. The installation seeks inspiration in every form of human expression: image (visual art), sound (music), movement (dance) and word (poetry), and unites them into one art piece on the façade of St. Peters Church.
Don’t come to me with the entire truth.
Don’t bring me the ocean if I feel thirsty,
nor heaven if I ask for light;
but bring a hint, some dew, a particle,
as birds carry only drops away from water,
and the wind a grain of salt.
