This video is a film excerpt which was edited film. The original duration is 6'52".
This work is a ballet using the sound and the movement of the algae and water. With the waterway as the theater, I filmed the choreography of the algae that flows in the water.I shot this with a waterproof camera on a slider dolly . Using this device I created a simulated experience of walking through the waterway for the viewer.
In the man-made waterways of rice paddies, the water in nature must follow artificial rules. In that way, nature is made abstract, giving rise to a new form of beauty distinct from the natural state. The theme of this work is the liveliness of the water as it follows the man-made course.
