Video installation

SHIMO Hiroyasu [Japan]

An installation projecting studio-shot video images of “trapped” people onto a 4.5 m high screen situated in the 70 cm gap between a tobacco shop and an ophthalmology clinic using back projection. Viewed from across the street on the Tokyo Midtown side, the work gives the apparent impression of people actually being trapped between the two buildings coming face to face with their situations of confinement.
