Video art is a vital field within contemporary art. Working with the elevator company Aritco, Lervik has produced an elevator where one of the panels show a detailed film of an old woman’s face slowly transforming from lifeless to full of life. It is accompanied by a set of glass lamps shaped as rocks, which have been given the capacity of apprehending human touch and communicating with other rocks to express community and closeness. Perhaps you own one rock, and an older relative owns another so that they can sense when you touch your stone, thinking of them. The work offers a chance to think about all those old people who are lonely and in need of human touch.
