Multimedia installation made of 9 screen split video, toilet papers, fans, speakers
By it configuration, it invites the audience to wandering into the screening place, where air is blown by fan , interrupting the light of projector, their shadows printed on the different paper screens.
The epileptic video made of pictures of signals of the city and samples of a diary based on numbers, is diffracted on different parts of screen make it reading impossible, it becomes just fragments of the reality and numbers.
The fragility and light of the toilet evokes the ephemeral aspect of life. By his lightness & the blowing air , make the body conscientious of this fragility in this apocalyptic meaningless world. An installation about humans in a world of numbers.
2011 12/10 -12/31 Fete de la WSK - Manille
Organized by SABAW Media Art Kitchen
Multimedia installation made of ropes, bambou, clothes and headphones.
Clothes, collected from the habitants of the neighbourhood , are suspended like a maze arranged in differents colors & material. People wandering into the maze of clothes touching the clothe or avoiding them and they can pick up headphones and listen to a mix of sound and interview caught in the neighborhood.
Finally , a Frenchman living in Kyoto, Samuel André, a.k.a. IEVA, closes this Japanese series with La Cascade de la Montagne de l’Aube [ 日ノ岡 の滝], a rich and fascinating record. While his predecessors most of the time chose very limited sound sources, IEVA prefers clear drones, field recordings and real melodies to form a pointillist landscape. Using birdsong, the wind, water sounds, indistinct cracking and aerial melodies, IEVA offers a vision of HIS Japan, the vision of a Western man in a foreign land which gets richer little by little, as ritual percussion and chanting voices (we’re somewhere between a ceremony and a demonstration, unless it’s both) let life seep in through every corner of the landscape, a vision which hardens and becomes more radical but never loses its apparent composure in the process. Yin and Yang (and all the relationships that unite them) are expressed and exposed in a little over twenty minutes : not an easy challenge, and yet a particularly impressive balance is achieved in this record.
