Fifth Element, a book of self-destruction by Marija Strajnic
- Dusan Juric as water
- Isidora Veselinovic as earth
- Marija Knezevic as fire
- Danilo Andjus as air
- Milica Kolaric and Stefan Unkovic as kiss
Dusan, Isidora, Marija and Danilo were asked to make facial expressions as if they were supposed to die by the force of either water, or earth, or fire, or air. Their expressions were photographed, developed and printed as photographs, in order to be undertaken by the destruction process. Result is a book, with a set of 16 interactive portraits of the people suffering their own devastation. Each step of the destruction process in this book is interrupted with a successively zoomed kissing scene which encircles those 4 deaths into the Fifth element, showing the impossibility of existing as an Absolute.
Just only 13 years old, Zev (Fiddle Oak) creates a fantasy dreamland through his photographs. His camera is named Betsy. Zev’s sister and assistant Nellie is 17. They enjoy working and creating together. The magic of Fiddle Oak cannot be described in words; no word that already exists can accurately sum up the extreme talent and wonder of Zev and Nellie.
