a slow and burning hope



[11 hand-made beeswax candles of various heights burn on an old and scuffed wooden table top in front of a white wall. Captions with white writing come and go on the bottom of the screen displaying a short text (transcript can be downloaded below). At 57 seconds, the text stops. The remaining 41 minutes 29 seconds of the video show the candles burning down, until each one slowly burns itself out and the video is plunged into darkness.]
