Vanishing Act  I  Ori Shifrin Anavi

Vanishing Act is a cinematic video project which seeks to examine questions about design and creative processes by using crafts, performance, and their documentation as tools for visual, material, and conceptual expression about a process and its formation, the point where it starts and ends, if it ever does.

While working on the project, a series of three living installations has been developed, in addition to performative experimentation and digital documentation, which explores and shows it, calling for re-examination of basic principles in design and the process behind it. Eventually, an “industrial designer performance”, was translated to a short film telling a symbolic story of a creative process, or any process.
