Midnight Art Museum , 2010
Music is On, Band is Gone, 2010
single channel video with sound , 5’
This is a video about the instant. A butterfly strayed into the room, flying between the window pane and the
curtains. Awakened by its fluttering, I shot a short video using a mobile phone while lying in bed. In the
process of production, I extended this video from a few seconds to five minutes in length, to discuss a
question: If we make a moment present the specific lengths of of time and psychological frame,
what are we going to see?
Summanus, in Greek mythology, is a fictional god who produces thunder and lightning at night. In my
opinion, he is constantly in the production of instant.
