Summanus butterfly
Video 05:00
2011
 
This is a video about the instant. A butterfly strayed into the room, flying between the window pane and the curtains. Awakened by its fluttering, I shot a short video using a mobile phone while lying in bed. In the process of production, I extended this video from a few seconds to five minutes in length, to discuss a question: If we make a moment present the specific lengths of of time and psychological frame, what are we going to see?
Summanus, in Greek mythology, is a fictional god who produces thunder and lightning at night. In my opinion, he is constantly in the production of instant.
