Single channel video

I wrote a story by using video clips. But the story does not talk about anything concrete, it’s just being narrative. It consists of five chapters which are stories by the seaside, in nature, in a dream, in artificial cultural heritages and in cityscapes. All video and sound clips were collected by myself in daily life.

 

Being narrative is connecting a series of events together and time, space and language are three elements of it. I like to explore these concepts because I see them as my connection to the world. So it seems natural for me to make moving images and writing. The narration created is a space where those events happen in a certain order. Thus, I didn’t intend to tell any story specifically because I simply wanted to connect events together in order to explore the nature of narration. Where and when those events happened are distinguished from each other and each clip recording those events is unique themselves. They are like words and the whole video is text.

 

I gradually realised that my job of making work is not to tell people something, it simply is ‘gluing’ various fragments and show them the whole piece. Stan Douglas said ‘When the viewers enter a space to see a work, their bodies have negotiated with the space by making their presence.’ I want my work to be experiential which is to provide a space for the viewer to enter and exit at any point. They may form their own narrative by connecting some clips in the work to their own memory of the same location, or they may find it irrelevant to themselves.
