Oil spirals out of and dissolves into infinite space.

One in a series of three computer-generated motion pictures taking the earth's most traded raw material as subject matter, Oil is both tantalizing and disconcerting in its exploration of our complicated relationship with this sort after commodity; a relationship both seductive and repellent, both beneficial and detrimental to our environment, economy and social fabric.

Oil is part of an evolution of animations the artist began with 'Funky Oil' in 1999 which sold in Paul Smith and the Tate Modern Shop as 'DVD Pop Art'. At the time, Ilic described DVD Pop Art as 'mass-produced moving image art enabling the public to transform their televisions into frames for the exhibition of moving image art.'
