Labor in a Single Shot | 2018

 

Three-channel video, 2018

This piece of video is inspired by Harun Farocki’s workshop series—Labour in a Single Shot, beginning in 2011, the concept of which is to discuss both on the topics of labour and the film-making process. In this video work, I combined these two topics since the latter is naturally an example of the former. My goal is to reveal the labour behind producing this piece of video as much as possible, meanwhile, to construct a reflexive narrative of itself. Some of Charlie Kaufman’s screenplays might subtly influence me during conceiving the idea of this work.
