A Journey Through (2009)
Digital video with audio
The inspiration for the piece is the traditional Japanese narrative scrolls which have a pictorial rather than narrative form. In A Journey Through, much like in the scrolls, the audience becomes a traveller and is offered the experience of moving through space and time. Multiple vanishing points are used to generate a sense of depth and perspective and the roads or paths are used to lead the viewer’s eye into the work to give the sensation of being inside different worlds.
