Sunset Over the Ruins of the Plaster Hotel
David Frankovich [CA] / 35 min

I stand on a wooden box, my arms outstretched in front of me. In my right hand I hold a wooden picture frame. In my left hand I hold an egg. A chair is positioned next to me so that, if someone sits in it, their perspective lines up the picture frame and egg with the window of the gallery and an unfinished hotel in the distance, which has been abandoned since the end of Soviet rule in Lithuania. I hold this position as long as possible, until the egg drops. When the egg hits the floor, it breaks and gold glitter spills out. I carefully balance the picture frame on the floor so that it frames the broken egg.
