Jury Selections

X-RAY TRAIN

SHIMURABROS.

Installation

A space where 12 special screens are laid out ; a train captured by a medical CT scanner rushes through these layers of screen, and the visual image occupies the three-dimensional space of the real world. The people were astounded to see the world's first motion picture,The Arrival of a Train at La Ciotat Station by the LUMIERE brothers. This work is an attempt to create a visual image that matches their wonder, and an experience of light that could not be found in previous visual images.
