“Still (Nothing)” is a stolen 8 hours video (with a break for lunch), shot with a hidden camera, showing the artist while working as a  guard, during one of the many jobs he made to earn some money, while trying to carry on with his career as an artist. It is his personal biography, told with calm during the entire duration of the video. The video has also the aim to testify the nothingness, the condition of who really “works for nothing” and begins to feel nothing and to be nothing. The immobility is the personal reaction of the artist, completely voided of dignity and without the energy to react. While time passes by, a money counter displays, to the minute, his daily wage.

Note:
The video is part of a bigger project which will include “Nothing: the last night”, a movie which will be entirely written, played, shot, edited by the self artist.
