The Moment(2012)

  • The Moment (2012) is an installation with found objects from Fuku- shima and a glitch video made from found footage. In the installation, I envisioned that there was a person who tried to document the chaotic moment of disaster with a camera, but had lost it during the evacuation. I wanted to ask, what if the moment of evacuation was the last time that the person was in her house, and she would never be able to go back to it? To create a narrative with those ideas, I made a glitch video, which was virtually restored from the broken digital camera I brought from Fuku- shima. The video shows a short but intense moment, a moment in which everything is falling down in a house. While the video keeps repeating the moment, the clock and the mirror that I installed in the space symbolize the power of this short, destructive moment.
