the spout and its churn rate is a performance piece based on a set of six milk churns of the same volume. Through the intensive act of repetitively pouring 1.5 litre of milk from one churn to another, the artist visualises the inevitable loss during the ongoing process of transferal.
the realisation of the equal volume of each churn, despite their variety of form, offers a tantalising satisfaction, yet ultimately this hoped-for notion that the milk will perfectly flow from each to the next cannot be realised. meanwhile the subtle differences in each spout causes the milk to pour in unpredictable manners.
informed by an economic term churn rate - the rate at which customers stop doing business with an entity, the title sheds light on involuntary disengagement of all sorts in everyday scenarios, revealing the poignancy of sacrificing a small part of us in order to carry on living.
