Artist: Oliver Laric

Oliver Laric projects his video on a LED screen located at one of the busiest traffic junctions in the heart of Krabi City. The artist uses simple black lines on a white background to create several animation clips depicting the transformations of animal, objects, and people. Every scene continually happens without closure or resolve. The artist’s inspiration and references come from images found in history. All of the cartoon characters Laric includes can be seen as archaeological evidence that keeps changing and adapting to fit any kind of circumstance. The video does not focus on what the creatures have become but rather explores the moment during every transforming process. As one looks at the small lines and dots moving, bending, and twisting, to create a new outline of the new character, one realizes that, no matter how enormous things exist in nature, all of them only start from a small element. Big things have small beginnings.
