Star & Dust (OKINAWA)
"In the ""Star & Dust"" series, he creates an installation that uses a printing technique called ""lenticular,"" in which zz
In this series, Kim consistently takes images taken or collected by Mori and collages them together.
Mori photographs the beauty and light of things and situations that momentarily pass away or are treated like trash or a gateway to somewhere other than here. Yet, at the same time, he collects images of ""stars"" from various glorious times.
The images that he replaces or are in the process of being replaced contain familiar others, foreign objects, mysteries, shared and unshared, and through their presence, imagine, invert, misread, mishear, and mix images and events from distant times and places or there.
For the viewer to see or experience these images, which contain a certain kind of movement, the viewer must move not only his or her gaze but also the body.
In addition to the Star & Dust (KYOTO) and (ATAMI) series, the artist has created a new series (OKINAWA) using photographs taken in Okinawa last year, which are combined in this installation."
