Ficus Elastica

Ficus Elastica


2 channal video installation with rubber tree, HDV camera on tripod, arm chair, carpet, picture frame, curtains, stereo sound and surround sound.

The rubber tree was passed over to me from my grandmother. Throughout a 13 minutes long sound sphere the Ficus Elastica becomes the carrier of memories and experiences from a summer I spent at my grandparents in Halland, 1998.

Live-recordnings from the handy cam is projected inside a picture-frame. It

co-respond with movements and lights in the room and create an interactive cinematic atmosphere.
