Drifting Cinema

Video installation / 42'37" / (2015)

Drifting Cinema is an event based experimental film exploring the possibility of the cinema space as well as the potential of framing. A diminished 16:9 rectangle, which referring to the aspect ratio of traditional cinema, was cut in a piece of black paper and stick on the window of the train from L√ľneburg to Hamburg. The moving image that synchronised with 60's Cantonese and English popular music.

By breaking down the representation space of the darkroom, moving image from everyday-life become captured and presented as film. The setting of the work attempt to invite spectators to question what film is; also inviting them to appreciate, re-discovery everyday-life image from another perspective.

Film can be happen everywhere once we apply the same attitude in film appreciation on observing daily life.
