"appearance / disappearance"

Video installation

6 min. 57 sec. cycle

This is double projection work.

For this work, I took video of smashing a glass sheet.
In this work, two films of smashing a glass sheet are projected on to two screens which are installed parallel to each other. Those films are similar but they are not completely same image.

The films begin with darkness, we don't see anything in the screens at first. In the next stage of the films, a shinny sphere appears and clashes on to the screens in a dark room. The solid sound of its collision reminds us the existence of invisible wall between the imagery and us. And then the spheres appear and clash again and again, and the collisions start to leave the marks on the screens gradually. The marks reflect light, and the space are slowly filled up with those chaotic shinny marks and sparkling fragments from the impacts in the end.
