Artist Statement:


I am looking at you You are looking at me I am looking at you looking at me I am looking at you looking at me looking ∞ Experiment! Fantasy! Documentary! CCTV cameras as video cameras, lift as a performing stage: A “Closed Circuit” Live Performance x Video Arts I always feel that we are being monitored by someone, by plenty of “Eyes in the Sky”, by Paparazzi, by Youtubers, by The Authorities, by self-censorship. In the future, can we keep on searching for and questioning the “Truth”? Using the CCTV system as a metaphor, to present an attitude – Who is afraid of…? Magnifying our daily life fantasies, reversing our passive situation of being monitored, being initiative to create arts, opening up space for the “Closed Circuit”. It’s time to step out of the box, “Throw Away Your Books, Rally in the Streets”! Getting to know our city, to speak out, hoping to make a real change.
