Apartment is a recent video project by Eric Deis, an interdisciplinary artist from Vancouver, currently showing at the Emily Carr Institute of Art + Design. The 1 min 48sec video loop is of a still apartment where water suddenly starts to flow unimpeded, as if triggered by the steaming of the kettle. Deis focuses on the regularity of the dousing and the steady flow of water which soaks walls, carpet, countertop – creating "normalcy" out of an ordinarily unusual occurrence. Some say normal,some say eerie - thought-provoking either way.
The video loop can be viewed at the following link.
