infinity in Berlin

"Paths are made by walking"

In order to determine the truth of this statement, Yamashita and Kobayashi ran in a loop on a grass lawn for nine straight days. Photos were taken in one-second intervals and edited together to make a high speed time-lapse video. In the video, a path shaped like an infinity loop gradually emerges in the grass.

This is the second staging of "infinity", a project the artists performed once before with the same title in 2006. The second staging of "infinity" took place in 2008 from April 8-17 as a performance program in "Re-imagining Asia", an exhibition at Haus der Kulturen der Welt (HKW) in Berlin curated by Shaheen Merali.
