A hummingbird’s heart rate can reach as high as 1260 beats per minute. I had a phobia when I was younger, between 8 and sometime in my early teens, about the shape of drawn hearts which I couldn’t stand. Every time I drew a heart I felt like I had to erase it immediately. In this work the hearts slowly scratch and erase themselves running through the wheels of the projector.
