ENDO Maiko
Online Film《X》


Online Film《X》is the newest art work by a film director and artist, ENDO Maiko. This film is streamed on YouTube and other platforms to expand the possibility of film experiences. This project consists a daily updated video streaming channel (Admission free) and a live video streaming with Cai Tanikawa Oglesby, a poet (Admission charge) on the last day of the festival. Please see below for the details.

The Japanese word “kokoro” refers to a heart, consciousness or mind. In this sense, human “kokoro” has no substance, and no-one knows where exactly it is. The “kokoro” is a thing that one can cherish, even though s/he doesn’t know what it is about. In this work, the artist explores the whereabouts of her own “kokoro” by filming and editing subjects that were “naturally” chosen by this “kokoro” of hers. The storyline for this film doesn’t yet exist. Will the artist’s “kokoro” compose one, as she continues her random shootings day after day? And if it does, how will that story affect the “kokoro” of those who watch and try to interpret it? We will find out in this online experiment.
