"Mono Log" is derived from the word monologue; additionally mono means thing in Japanese and thus the title has a double meaning of one-man play and diary of things. This video omnibus contains nine sequences, which were all filmed and screened in my three-month residency at Duende, Rotterdam.
He (1’04”): It was on a snowy day and terribly cold. I just wanted to relieve my feelings with a message on the snow but I changed my mind on the last one second (don’t miss it). Her (0’38”): Since I opened the package of toothbrush, she has always been smiling me. I might fall in love with her, though she is an unattainable dream to me. The Shining Glasses (1’35”): I imagined if Jack Nicholson would play with glasses. Punch Shock Corridor (1’40”): There were many cracks on the wall. It scared me but made me violent to fight with invisible enemies. The Nightmare After Christmas (1’26”): I found many abandoned fir trees on the street at the beginning of the year in Rotterdam. Tit Collector (1’36”): There were many holes on the floor in my studio. I made the patterns of holes by a Blu-Tack. Cul-de-Sac (Plastic) (1’15”): Making a plastic bag fly with a teeth brush and scissors, or a conflict over a plastic bag between a teeth brush and scissors came to a dead end. The Hard Rocker (1’16”): A sanitation worker was possessed by a hard rocker. One Minute Sculpture Video (1’00”): Inspired by an Austrian artist Erwin Wurm’s one of the series “One Minute Sculpture,” the process of “One Minute Sculpture” was shown in one minute.
