It is a conversation-piece as in a family portrait in video. Participants are linked by an
activity, in this case having a sukiyaki party. The camera is focused on their hand
movements while we hear their intimate conversations. They gossip about those
characters who appear on the television screen. This work is about “otherness” in relation
to the question of one’s identity. My intention was to play with the verbal and visual codes
we use in our understanding and eventually to deconstruct an image of “other people”.
