Perpetua Frustra Conatos

with Jack Alexandroff, Albert Barbu, Taeyoung Choi, Eleni Papazoglou

Perpetua Frustra Conatus is a kinetic sculpture that conveys a sense of empathy towards a struggling, yet non-living object. Displayed half finished, as if the taxidermist stepped away from his workbench, the specimen desperately attempts to escape in self-preservation, while creating an uncanny symbiosis between the living and the inert.
