Black Book (slideshow)

2 slide projectors, microprocessor, rear projection glass screen, 17’50”, 2019

Black Book installation uses analog film projectors controlled via microprocessor for a large screen viewing experience of the original artist’s book. It joins two distinct threads of disparate cultures and histories — Confucian virtues and modern black humour — inquiring into contemporary ideologies such as patriarchy, political coercion, and technological determinism. The artist’s book of the same title was published by Information Office in 2018.
