The green thread

Vanessa Cardui 6:37, Germany

A piece of thread is cut off again and again from a ball of wool until almost nothing is left of it and in the end, life only hangs on a very thin, short thread. The pictorial metaphor of the increasingly smaller ball of wool shows the finiteness of our natural resources.

Vanessa Cardui, born in 1987, is a Berlin-based video artist. She studied art at the Hildesheim university in Germany. Her work is characterized by artistic metamorphoses. She transforms everyday objects into pieces of art by exploring the different techniques of animation to bring the objects to life. She works with meaningful colour contrasts and creates an imaginative world that arises from the texture of the material.
