Lindsey Adelman – New York, NY

“The way things come into being is as interesting to me as how they transform, disintegrate, extinguish, or are destroyed. My video captures destruction while the laborious creation is implied. In slow-motion footage two hand-blown glass and brass Burst chandeliers crash into each other. There is undeniable pleasure in destroying. It’s a big part of our relationship with things as a culture.”

Lindsay Adelman - Some Relationships Are Better Than Others – video

“With my installation I explore the positive side of the material world being finite. In life, objects are damaged and destroyed through dancing, playing, using, loving, sharing and living life in general. All signs point to the reality that the world as we know it, and us in it, were never designed to exist forever. The video, entitled “Some Relationships Are Better Than Others” challenges the preciousness of static objects and gives value to the power of action and transformation.”
