Rule the World

2016, HD Video, duration 00:02:35

Rule the World portrays a teenage girl standing seemingly still surrounded by a forest. She has a masked bite wound on her neck and her face seems tense. Micro expressions on her face are changing rapidly. The soundtrack is a composition with the same title by 15-year-old Elsa Pursio. The fast electronic beat contradicts the stillness of the image. In Rule the World, the evil played by and existing in a child is present as an endless stillness, waiting for life to begin – the wage and confused feeling of power, which she can’t fully control.
