Market Place Electro
2014 / 1-channel video, sound
In transforming daily images of a meat market into some hyper-techno digitized visual stimulus, the video explores the possibilities of image, and puts the discourse of daily life into the contemporary context. The violence of a meat market somehow matches the ear-punching electronic music, which is only possible in the age of modern science and technology.
