I was travelling somewhere, in the back of a cart, straw in my mouth and I realized the country passing me by was far more amazing than the developments in my head and that I could not quantify or explain or ever provoke the simplicity which I saw before me. So I chewed on that straw and rode those hard bumps and felt… nothing, not because I was numb, not because of some confused sense of purpose but because I did not have an answer. —Anon.
Comprising of a three-channel, digital animation and a four-channel, sound mix, The Folly is the re-interpretation of three paintings by sixteenth-century Flemish painter Pieter Bruegel the Elder. Projected alongside one another, the paintings Hunters in the Snow, The Corn Harvest and The Fall of Icarus are redrawn and animated, turning the static works into moving images.
