13/8 Plan

2019

He recruits and films participants from among the local people. This is a video installation work which magnifies the images of people in everyday attire by 13/8 and displays them in a 3m box with a sense of reality. The realism of the video with its mysterious sized images will give the impression of straying into a sci-fi movie scene. This art gives us an opportunity to take a view of ourselves in the modern days and to fantasize and think positively about the future.
