[NOTHING for 60min] is a body image work which focused on body movement combine to live media and sound.
It begins from „NOTHING for body“ and represented by unique language of each artistic expression under the same theme and concept. It tells about our subjective point of view to the other through the new view of the body. Harmonized expression between the body, media and sound, not to lean to one side. It changes a perception of the body.
Audience will see the same movement images at the same time, at the same space. But we want that all they have different feelings and images from this work and take it how they imagined.The subject who makes the images are the audience, not the performer.
The delicate movements of hands and feet which moves inside the body space makes the several images through the light. And the movements of wrinkle and muscle close-up is shown in real time video. Recorded sound of the body makes rhythmical structure and experimental sonic.
You will see the body. But you will forget that it’s the body.
“We know about ourselves.But what do others know about us?
They only see their opinion of me, look at a part of me and interpret it as they want. They think they know me. But it’s NOTHING.”
