SYNOPSIS

When night falls, Seoul turns into a huge 'theater' itself. In theaters, lights are turned off and with the darkness, the projector casts images on the screen...The same thing happens every night in Seoul. The artificial lights in urban spaces(signs, neon sign, cars) make endless reflections on the walls across. Being in the magnificent theater - Seoul, what do we see. rather, what do we desire? Love and romance, hero and stars, action and spectacles.......We fall into the infinite illusion of images.

DIRECTING INTENTION

This Work is a visual poem that questions 'the fundamentals of theater' through the surface of super city, Seoul. With no digital effect used, nothing but the reflection of light was captured, cut, and edited. It was an attempt to look into 'the phantom of image' in theaters which is a political system, by representing 'digital' imprints in a very 'analogical' way.
