This video installation was created by visual artist Alberto Gori in consonance with the œuvre of Ruudt Peters. It is made of many videos with elements referencing Peter’s jewellery series.
The video took its root from clips of bursting thermal mud recorded by Peters during his trip to Japan, a direct reference to BRON (source, in Dutch). It was then layered with footage selected by Gori as a representation of all the things of earth, as continuously coming from and going back to the source.
Gori filtered through a vast video archive in a way analog of a computer processing data: using keywords based on each jewellery series of Ruudt Peters, he was able to reinterpret the concepts of Peters’ work on an abstract but evocative level.
