See the Sea with me

2021

Single channel video, colour, audio

Duration: 4 min 28 sec

 

I was attracted by the photos from news on 2nd March, 2021. They showed some remand persons trying very hard to show messages towards the cameras before they transferred to the court. What did the press photographers actually see? I searched for the route and climbed to the mountain which was the only place to capture these photos. I tried to see what they had seen.

The hand drawn stop motion animation is created with graphite and coloured pencil on paper. As it is about social issue and daily life, I collect elements from daily living and news for this work. The images from news, chats from neighbours, sounds of raining, audios from activists' interviews or clips from radio are transformed into the animation.
