Summanus Butterfly, 2010

Summanus Butterfly, 2010

single channel HD video, color/sound, 16:9, 4’23”

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.
