I’m There
for Video and sound installation

“A while ago, when I was in the midst of promoting one of my concerts, there was a question that came up in my mind: ‘When is the best time for the arts? Or when is the best time not for the arts?’ In this work ‘I’m there,’ I create an actual situation in which the art is surrounding us, in a place where we usually wouldn’t stay long or just pass by quickly. The most suitable few places to install this work would be by the waiting area of a washroom, the corridor, or the waiting island halfway across the road. The video is a 30-minute loop. Unexpectedly there will be a one-minute video clip showing a few times within the loop. This one-minute video clip is a modification of a moving street view from Hong Kong, which I captured from the inside of a car. The work is an attempt to record a very simple scenario in your memory, the moment that you notice the video is playing near you. If you are waiting to see the next one-minute of the video clip, congratulations, we are in the same group of people who are eager to see more arts in our life.”
