Reflecting Corners

We are so quick to notice the differences among ourselves. So quick to point out that we are different from each other. But we tend to forget that we all came from the same source. Our society, our culture – it all evolved from the same corners and is increasingly coming together on this globe. The project attempts to show how we have been looking past our differences, discovering in parallel the similarities that Eastern and Western cultures share. The project starts with a simple split-screen video clip (showing the similarities between Eastern and Western cultures) projected onto a corner space while a short live music set is played by the author-as-DJ. The projection, however, might turn out to be(come) round.
