Videos from A to Z: 'Subliminal Affair' between Arata Mori, Sarane Lecompte, Justin Palermo and Yuko Kaseki
Text by Justin Palermo:
Engaging in a back and forth game of free association with photos as our medium, we responded to each other's propositions by deforming, covering, editing and drawing on top of one another's photos: a repeated process in which personal memories and snapshots lose a clear source of origin but gain in intricacy. It was a collaborative practice that acknowledges the impossibility of making images in isolation. Indeed we are different, we don’t share a common aesthetic or language, we are four different registers, four different perspectives, four people who feel differently about different things, but in these shared images we cast a single shadow.
We started to exchange our ideas through FB messages and Skype to create visual word images. Accumulations of imagination and illuminations feed slices of layers for wearing on the body. During the three weeks of research process many people joined in this unknown path. Playful games are our lives, there exists dance in every moment. To question, to observe and hear carefully, balancing on borders and boundaries and falling into… where? Thank You very much for joining to share this experience together.
