Rediscovery of anima

Media installation

GOTO Akinori [Japan]



Here trajectories of motion constructed in three dimensions out of wood and stone are played back with slits of sunlight to spark conjecture on their possible impacts on past society or culture and potential evolution had they existed at the dawn of cinema or 30,000 years ago when Neanderthals made cave paintings. The work also recaptures the primal sensation of seeing apparent motion in this age of video inundation.
