Being a visual artist and a Hoop Dance instructor the same time might sound abstract. What these things have in common is that I am asked quantitative questions about both, such as:
“How long did you work on this object”, “What´s the weight of this sculpture”, “How long can you hula hoop?” and finally “How much money can you earn with that?” By putting myself in the uncomfortable situation of finding out how long I can hula-hoop – meaning until I am so exhausted that the hoop drops – I want to reflect on how work is valued in our society and what it means to justify yourself for being an artist.
Daylight was used only. It gives a feeling of the passing time.
