THE GREAT ANNIHILATOR

With a reference to the hypnotic music of the “Swans”, the video displays a man performing as a pendulum in an old and rusty playground swing. Pushing himself in time with the natural interval of the swing (its resonance frequency) is playing the squeaking of the shackles and cracking of the wood. It’s an allegory of the manhood. A propitiatory movement for the next annihilation as defined as “total destruction” or “turning into nothing” of an object.
