When I come out of State Theatre after a strange award-winning Thai film, Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past Lives, at Sydney Film Festival, the winter light on George Street strikes my eyes and I have to respond to it.
This video looks similar to one of my previous photography at Mardi Gras Harbour Party two years ago. Even though I have worked with this concept before, it is still an experiment for a number of reasons.
First of all, it is a native video, not a bunch of still images I did. The element of time adds a whole new dimension to the perception. Secondly, it is shot in horizontal orientation since it has to be on screen. Most of all, it is shot on a mobile phone which is the restriction I always embrace. However, there is the same sense of trance as I did the photography while shooting this video. I believe that sense also comes out when it is premiered at Kino Sydney.
The featuring music is “Look, Cowboy, Look!” by Damscray.
