The juxtaposition of the images between a Western movie by Hollywood and the artist's routine life in the split screen, makes us compare the drama and the daily life. This also shows her daily life where surrounding images internalizes her. This work involves gender issues, since there is an attitude that as a woman it's hard to accept herself as the "Loser" in the Western movie.

"Living in the Box" (Kentaro Taki+Naoya Ooe)
Body parts are displayed in the white box as specimen. Each part tries to seek something and these behaviors seem to remind ourselves of today’s blockaded situation. This is the collaboration work with Naoya Ooe(operation) + Maiko Date(dancer) directed by Kentaro Taki. This is the short version of the original work.

"AI" ( Sung Nam HAN)
This is the second part from trilogy on "AI=sexual intercourse." In front of fusuma painting "Kaede-zu"by Tohaku Hasegawa(16c. painter), a couple make indirect intercourse by gazing each other. Their cross-gazing intercourses with the movements of fusuma painting. "At this moment, the couple are as if without heaven, without ground, without society, without people at all."
"SHOT" (Nishiyama Shuhei)
Each“moment”of destructive force of the reality has been shot, recorded, and visualized. Set the boundary of before and after deconstruction at the “moment” when image and sound of collision match together, and the artist visualizes idea of "non-revertible." This work deconstructs the image of deconstruction by differentiation, repetition, expansion and addition of image/sound of different moments.

"Pathologic Video Practices" (Naoya Ooe)
The simulation of how audiences reacted to films in early times, evokes the sense of falsehood but new perspectives. The extendation relates to the reference to media that to release from captivity of information system.

"The Lost in the Backyard of Surface" ( Naoya Ooe)The simulation of how audiences reacted to films in early times, is a fiction but creates the new perspectives. From the point of video, this discloses the principles of imprisonment by the media information, and will be extended to the criticism against media.
