blind film comprises a series of new media installations involving a real-time composition of the kinetic system and digital interface that attempts to reconfigure familiar subjects that constantly change and repeat in the everyday life but at times come to us like unrefined feelings and traces. This project has started by looking at a window blind that is commonly seen around. At the moment of coincidentally seeing an instant stripe of light that shines through the room, penetrating a window blind for a short while, the sense of discontinuity and fragmentation left a trace on my body. An unknowable glimpse of light formed a mediating figure between the moment of occurrence and the moment of observation, then collapsed into the recognition of unfixed experience as an open constellation, porous to contingencies. blind film embraces the capacities of intimacy based on absence, distance, and ruptures of time and space that reconstruct both actual and virtual spaces as well as the viewers, affording a complex sensorial experience by stepping aside from the event to look at it from a temporal distance, and over time.
