In this project, filmmaker Endo Maiko shows an online movie throughout the duration of the festival. The human “mind” – it has no substance, and no-one knows where exactly it is. The “mind” is for us a thing that we cherish, even though we don’t know a thing about it. In this work, the artist explores the whereabouts of her own “mind” by filming and editing subjects that were “naturally” chosen by that “mind” of hers. The storyline for this film doesn’t yet exist. Will the artist’s “mind” compose one, as she continues her random shootings day after day? And if it does, how will that story affect the “minds” of those who watch and try to interpret it? We will find out in this online experiment.
Admission: Free to watch on the YouTube channel (updated once a day), 1,500 yen for the live broadcast from 11am Japan time on Sunday 20 February 2022.
