πῦρ ἀείζωον, 2019
water drawing cloth, brush, water
Heraclitus believed that the cosmos was an ‘everlasting fire’ (πῦρ ἀείζωον).
“Πῦρ” (fire) was described as a cosmological constant, which is eternally being transformed. It is not a result of a creation or a birth and it will never completely disappear.
It strengthens, it weakens, it strengthens, -and so on.
During this performative act, I am continuously writing the phrase “πῦρ ἀείζωον” (everlasting fire) on a water-drawing cloth. As the water evaporates, the phrase disappears, until it will be written again.
