Video installation,

2 life-size screens that are shaped into a door

5 min. 50 sec. cycle

This is double projection work.

For the installation work, I took images of a door from both sides of it.
Each camera recorded same actions of the door at the same time, so that I get two separate films which are perfectly synchronized each other.
The actual movement in the films is simple, a woman is opening the door, and going out or coming in from the door way. The action is repeated again and again.

I am interested in an idea of seeing "a thing" from different angles at one time, which is physically impossible for us. Especially like a door way, as soon as she goes through it, she also comes in to a next space. It somehow shows our perception with ambiguity.

The two images from both sides of the door are projected on to the see through screens which are shaped into life-size door. Because these two screens are installed parallel and close to each other, the two images from the projectors overlap on the screens, and we see combined images at once.

Finally, we see complexity of the images, and it leaves us with ambiguity of perception visually and consciously.
