[SISEA 1990] Artist Statement: Arthur Elsenaar – Leaves

Artist Statement

This work illustrates the relationship Man/Nature. Through human interventions (environmental pollution) nature is violated, it recedes if approached and, frightened, starts to shake. The use of electronic technology in this installation is inherent to the pollution. The pleasure derived from it by the viewer is therefore also a warning.
