Reality ripple, 2017
Video projection and device to access to streaming via QR Reader application on the web.
The live video of a billboard in Bangkok is transmitted by a CCTV camera from April 2017 through January 2018 and projected live stream at the Lyon Bienniale. In addition to the projection inside the exhibition space, the visitor can access to the live stream via QR reader that they can flash with their mobile.
Among other advertisements, it could be just an abandoned billboard, empty and unused, to which nobody will pay any attention. In fact the images are produced on the absence of content, not telling a story but rather, asking what story should be told Despite the acute tensions in Thai society today, the political desires and cravings of certain groups also generate these moments of suspension and inertia. The silences imposed arbitrarily by the ruling powers compound the society’s frustration and depression. The bilboard becomes a site generating sequential images as if it were invisibility occupied by the Bienniale.
In Lyon, meanwhile, the billboard becomes a single, time-lapse image, standing for the steady accumulation and ‘eternal return’ of silenced time.
