It is an installation of seven video-performances that last one second. In each video, the artist bursts a balloon with a needle in different prehistoric sites in Cornwall, suggesting the idea of ephemerality and fragility. This is a metaphor for geological ages: it has taken many years for our planet to transform and grow and, in just one second, we are destroying everything. It links to discussions concerning the Anthropocene.
