In Summer 2019, thirteen students from the ECAL Master’s in Photography programme supervised by Milo Keller travelled to Japan to work on thirteen individual projects in collaboration with Japanese photographer Taisuke Koyama within the framework of the Tokyo Photographic Research project. The students’ artworks range from still and moving images to computer-generated photographic visuals and explore multiple facets of the Japanese megalopolis which is, once again, undergoing major transformation in preparation for the 2020 Summer Olympic Games.

I was interested to get to know Japanese peope trough their food, how and what is eaten at home, the culture around dining.

If I could only be sure, ECAL 2020

Inspired by the human capacity for emotional transformation and the examination of the still life genre, the project merges a series of still life videos of everyday objects and organic materials, presenting them through a unique, characterized manner, creating a collage of different recurring moments and processes in time.  The emphasis is on exploring the concept of entropy, making time tangible and capturing the transformation of a moment into its material representation.

‘If I could only be sure’ is presented on a 12 × 2 m half-circular projection screen, thus surrounding the viewer with the imagery and allowing for a more visceral experience.

Amid the fragility of the balance of life, its evermore mercurial force and the pressure to adapt to new realities, observing familiar objects can provide a moment in time for memories, senses, connections. The image, per se, is essentially the observation of a phenomenon that passes through time.

What happens, if nature takes back its place in our world full of trash, when plastic merges together with flowers and creates an unusual landscape? The project, a combination of still and moving images with experimental sounds, investigates these possibilities and plays in a surreal scenario with real and generated objects. It emphasizes the constant change we live in. Because the dream of reclaiming natural balance is a vehicle for possible futures.

Live performance, limited fine art prints and print edition for sale.
