Statement

I work on video arts using techniques of Stop motion.

The Stop motion is an animation technique that physically manipulates an object that appears to move on its own. The object is moved in small increments between individually photographed frames, creating the illusion of movement when the series of frames is played as a continuous sequence. The artist puts covert and detailed intervention between the captured frames which include a certain period of time like a few seconds or even a day. As people don't see the minute changes of the whole universe but only perceive an observable cosmic phenomenon, the audience only see the linear image of connected every single dot without knowing the actual time between the dots. There are unexpected interventions in the way of people's behavior or thinking which are similar to the characteristics of the Stop motion animation. This makes me have interests in making the Stop motion animation. I use puppets to make my own version of the Stop motion animation concerning how I should reveal figurations of human beings through the puppets rather than creating fantasy of puppets' world. Thus, I recreate the society and its members using black comedy, meanwhile they actually live their live as real people do in my works. Also, I try to create unique rhythms apposing actual successive movements and fabricated segmental movements which can be mixed techniques of the live action and stop motion filming.
