artist statement
This piece of work is aimed at visualizing the movement I experienced in a certain environment. For example, it is difficult to perceive a flight path in the vastness of the space from a small side window of a jet liner at high speed. After landing, I have a peculiar feeling looking back at a far away landscape that the plane have actually flown across just few minutes ago.

In my project "Transposition III", I intended to visualize this sort of unordinary movements in unfamiliar environments with the help of a graphical method. A successive series of photo images is the basic structure of my work. These images contain some hidden information of space. With the help of 3D computer graphics, it becomes clear and we could find some very amusing things that never appearon photo images by themselves.

In the continuous photo images of "Transposition III", it is considerably difficult to grasp the spatial relations of clouds in the sky. By composing correct 3D graphical elements generated by a match-move-software, these relations become exceedingly clear. Furthermore, the well-defined path of a camera makes it possible to show my real experience of flying movements in the world of 3D computer graphics. Transposition III consists of 13 sequential photo images combined with 3D graphics and some diagrams that present the flight path of an airplane. The sequence is the main theme of this work.
