Digital Balance

2019, South Korea

During a stay at Jeju Island in South Korea, van Laere created the work Digital Balance.

With the image of a drying cormorant in the back of his head, van Laere tried to dry in the South Korean wind and sun. By balancing on one leg the drying process got more and more intense and literally out of balance.

This live performance was recorded by cameraman Peter van Til and was later screened on a monitor that van Laere balanced on his hand, thus creating a double equilibrium.
