Dry Land Dry Beans

Video work [Japan]



A girl is walking round and round on the street. First, she scatters beans on the road, and picks them up the next time she comes round. What she is doing was filmed. The girl bends down every five steps and repeats the same action. The action of scattering and picking up the beans comes to be seen as a unity. Besides, the gaps in the action also become apparent. The entire film is filled with repetitions and gaps.
