Drawing by senkohanabi
Video Projection, 2021
Monochrome, Stereo sound, 3min
"Drawing by Senkohanabi" is a video work created by using 100 still images of sparklers as a single frame.
This is an act of reducing the time in which the 100 still images were taken to the time of a single frame, thus eliminating the temporal relationship between the two.
"Drawing by Senkohanabi" is a black and white video work derived from the same "Drawing Series" (2020).
The various patterns of fireworks spreading outwards from the centre look like deformed slime moulds in a petri dish.
The falling sparkler balls at the end of the film resemble a sunset.
Shimada's work, which abstracts the concept of time in fireworks, invites viewers to feel as if they are moving freely between micro and macro dimensions.
