"Spooning Head" is a custom digital canvas that replays an animated GIF. It is one of the four parts of the series called “Micro Relationships”. Rather than contain a story, it offers the audience the opportunity to rethink about love. A mix of traditional animation and 2D animation. This bizarre language art form offers a world outside of all dualism and imposed social norms. The four animated GIFs that observe the situations of love also trigger the liberation of the self through the body. In addition, the rhythm of the bodies is in parallel with the color combinations. This is a celebration of loving not only ourselves but also others. This is a celebration of another life possibility. The artwork is a permanently video processed, gradient printed mat, acrylic framed screen. It can be viewed in an infinite loop without requiring any application or interface. It starts working in about 10 seconds after you plug it in. This artwork is created only for shopi go ART by the artist. This artwork is only available at shopi go ART. The Certificate of Authenticity containing the name, date, technique, size and edition information of the work will be signed by the artist and delivered to you. This artwork will be prepared upon your purchase; it will be delivered within 1-8 working days. You can contact us for framing options, after the placement of the order.
