APATHY FOR THE SETTING SUN, 2010 – refers to the idea that the sun sets over a thousand times a day all over the world. Begging the question whether this nostalgic moment, this constant state of setting could have any significance. The object when seen in the context of the title becomes an artificial sun; it represents the centre, the protector, the provider of warmth and life, while simultaneously expressing the latent explosive danger inherent in the technological and eternal hydrogen bomb. The work is supposed to mirror its own agendum, as the romanticism of the naked flame, the natural light (the candle) has been extinguished by the infrastructure that supports the synthetic florescent light.
