Eight sculptures, each having an internal video screen visible via a set of mirrors and a lens. The screens were connected in twos to a dvd player, and displayed a single channel video of imagery shot in Tokyo, and with an audio track of ambient sounds from Japan. The dvd players meant that the sounds moved in and out of phase. The electric conduit connecting the sculptures was also part of the work.
The work was installed in an abandoned police station, and dealt with different views of a city, a critique of my Western-specific view of Japan. The lenses and the mirrors are a metaphor for the manner in which the experience of place is bounded by preconceptions and not seeing the wider perspective.
Dimensions are for each sculpture.
