" The World "

Contemporary Art from Nagoya : The World seen from this Position 2012



I fastened wandering figures and sequins on the painted forests and mountains.
"The World" is a piece of video art, in which these pictures are melting, so the fastened objects fall down and disappear. This piece questions our perception, how we think we "know" something in our lives today in the information society. It questions the existence of the reality of all of us, who are living in this vague world. These pieces weren’t generated in the computer; the melting pictures are real drawings which were melted and recorded on camera. This process was repeated and only a part of the many recordings was actually chosen. This piece is searching for perceptions of "real or surreal" or "uncertainty of reality" and it’s also an attempt to find the boundaries between me and the world, from the past, since the original (the drawing) has already disappeared and no longer exists.
