KWON Heesue South Korea 2023 16 min PG
Set in a public park in Seoul, this hypnotising film pulls audiences into the rotating eye of the artist’s camera.
Set in Seoul Forest, this film was shot with a self-rotating machine constructed by Kwon. The audience is pulled into the eye of the camera, experiencing the varying speed and rhythm of its revolutions; people and objects transform into afterimages of light and colour, and vice versa. A boy kicking a ball, a group taking wedding photos, an elderly person strolling and other individuals recur, suggesting the continual succession of human life.
The sound composition was based on the orbiting tempo of the images, layering in the machine’s mechanical vibrations and the park’s ambient sounds. This hypnotising work presents multiple ways of perceiving time and space through the recursive and cyclical mobility of sound and image.
