A 19th century etching of the bedroom in the Palace of Versailles, is animated and depicting the room in the midst of an earthquake. Every detail, from the moldings to the small figures in the hung paintings, tremble. Eventually all the elements: objects, furniture, decorative features fall and pile up on the rooms floor. The once crowded walls will be left with only a few lines signifying the bare walls. As the objects fall and break, their initial significance is questioned. The once strong, solid, symbols of power and glorification fall and break to useless shreds on the floor. Then comes the stillness, the uncluttered space is now a clear,even peaceful, landscape. Versailles is not only a French symbol, but a universal symbol of power, control and self aggrandizement through materialism.
