reconstructed ceramic fragments
During spring in Denmark, about one half hour before dusk, more than 1 million Sturnus Vulgaris (kind of bird) gathered from all over to join and form a remarkable collection of the air. Until making the sky looks dark. This phenomenon is called Black Sun, and can be seen in early spring in the western Denmark.
I love being alive

“To be working with my hands with the clay generates a stimulus in the brain. The connection between the brain and the breathing, and the sweating, and the time that you spend, and how you slow down thinking or you accelerate thinking—you generate the different aspects of thinking. When I feel that it should be ready is a quite subjective thing. The shape should represent what just happened before.”
Gabriel Orozco, our current 100 Artists featured artist, is shown here in 2002 working at Le Chailloux La Tuilerie in France, a former brick factory converted into a ceramics studio. This scene is featured in the Art in the Twenty-First Century Season 2 episode, Loss & Desire (2003).
