Hunt/觅 2009 Video

Video DVD Edition of 5 + AP

The subject here is in this work is freedom and what freedom means in life.  To address this idea, I chose birds, in particular seagulls, flying back and forth.

Blue sky with white clouds, seagulls flying back and forth; it is one of the most beautiful and calm images one can imagine. Yet in this very normal picture, there are abnormalities.   The flying birds here are between real and unreal; the act of “hunting” is reduced to “being fed”; the idea of freedom is not far from “lack of choice”. With anxiety and desperation we are getting closer and closer to the sun and brightness of all, is that freedom?
