sound story #1.bathroom 2min 42" single video installation on monitor. 2004

This piece is about the fictionality of what is believed to be real. People easily rely on their senses and think only what they take through their senses to be the truth. This work expresses the trap of this belief.

This is a video work where the observer can see a stationary scene of a toilet. Visuals are still but sounds are presented to lead the viewer to the direction the artist intended. (In the scene, a woman’s high hills are heard and followed by the sound of the woman presumably changing her sanitary napkin.) The scene ends with an unexpected situation, raising questions such as what is real, what exists, and what is hidden.
