Video installation

SHIBATA Maho [Japan]


A video installation employing rotoscoping to make animations of actual news programming, which is cut up phrase by phrase and presented as a new reconstruction of the news through random, real-time reshuffling. Work that poses to the viewer a question of whether believing information “not occurring in front of one’s eyes” as presented in the news might not have parallels with believing what the piece shows them.
