video projection installation, 2005. 7
2 video projectors, 2 DVDplayers, a screen
at WhiteBox, NY, New York
III' is a two-channel video projection installation exploring
the vibration of the subject and the 'in-between' space.
As with my previous work, this project continues questioning
three-dimensional screens and the moving screens.
In 'Corresponding III', the video creates a perceptual feeling
of three-dimensional space, even though it is projected
on the flat screen. The two-channel-videos were shot from
two perspectives, the front and the back of a woman spinning.
The two superimposed images projected on the flat screen
from two directions deliver a feeling of depth, and the
feeling of the continuous circular space where she spins.
But still there exists a gap between seen and unseen, visible
and invisible, so it also reveals the 'in-between' space.
The dancer spins staring at the camera lens, but in video
she also looks like she is staring at herself. The scene
looks like a mirror reflection, but it is not an actual
reflection. The two corresponding reflection-like images
also reflect a narcissistic feeling of an alter ego when
she looks at herself.
