2005DV single channeltotal duration 9:00 min.  It is a conversation-piece as in a family portrait in video. Participants are linked by an activity, in this case having a sukiyaki party. The camera is focused on their hand movements while we hear their intimate conversations. They gossip about those characters who appear on the television screen. This work is about “otherness” in relation to the question of one’s identity. My intention was to play with the verbal and visual codes we use in our understanding and eventually to deconstruct an image of “other people”.   https://vimeo.com/139682572
