I Have Come to a Place Where Depression Caught Me out of the Blue
video installation
2013-19

The artist places a wooden ladder in between the projector and the wall. The shadow of the object on the wall involves in the projection image. In the projection, there is a silhouette of a man practicing golf. He keeps swinging the club, but actually, the golf ball is placed on the wooden ladder that is not in the projection but the room. It creates a reality: the ball will never be hit. The dialogue between the physical object and the virtual image continues: the ball is not in the projection, and the golf player is absent from the reality of the viewers. A funny interaction with suspense is intricately formed between the visible physical object and the virtual character in the projection. The shadow of the wooden ladder looks like a building under construction. With a man on the top swinging his club against the golf ball that can never be hit, it creates an absurd but interesting image.
