“Simultaneously playing roles as a miniature sculptor and an art conservator gave me a strange feeling. My eyes and my hands could feel every tiny detail of the objects, more than usual. Every touch seems like an act of creating and destroying. The cracks, stains, the fingerprints, the dirt, the lines and the colours on the objects are obvious in my sight.”
In A Migration of Experience, Thanut Rujitanont explores his experience with “made objects” by playing roles as a miniature sculptor and an art conservator. With his interests in the field of animation and art conservation, he follows steps that art conservators should take when they acquired an object: acquiration, documentation installation and preservation. Then, he uses animation as a medium to observe his interaction with his made objects. The tiny cracks, stains, dirt and elements of the objects are manifested from analog to digital.
