Adler investigates the correlation between tangible material and its incorporeal dimensions.

This video is an experimental documentation of the decay of a highly symbolic historical piece of iron that allows to witness and listen to iron matter turning to soil again.
The work takes as its starting point the recovery of a historical artefact. By focussing on the pure matter of which the object is made, as well as its ability to encapsulate time, this work suggests an alternative journey through time. It is an abstract, mechanical, aesthetic proposition towards an object’s embodiment of time, beyond the imposed political meaning and symbolism it inherits.
Adler project is an ongoing project.
