instructions for a performance

16mm film and projector, piece of felt, balloon, cardboard box, fisherman's thread, palm tree

  Photographs: Plus screening

Conceived as a set of instructions to guide a choreography of objects through the structure of projected a film, the work was specially made and performed by Japanese collective Plus Screening (Rei Hayama, Takashi Makino and Shinkan Tamaki). They presented the work in different cities of Japan as part of a programme curated by Makino. The work explores projection as situation and the partial abdication of authorial control in favour of accident, chance or unforeseen circumstances.
