Adopting mainly hand contact printing with photographic enlarger, “Metaphysics of sound” started from September of 2006 and completed in July of 2007. With a 35mm soundtrack image, I made a hand-drawn soundtrack on the 16mm film strip. The sounds were made either by directly contact printing the 35mm sound tracks or collaging the scratch images. I found an educational film about insect collecting at Japan in 2005 as the main materials for imgaes work. Using a peculiar attribute of film medium, I began to think fundamentally about seen sound and heard image. According to pattern of sound on the 20% blank of 16mm film strip(normally used as space for optical recording), I edited whole image and made structure of film. Hence the margin is a where image is sound, and vice versa. Later, I studied the sound patterns which varied according to the kinds of images used or the concentration of the image, and made various attempts at rearranging the structure of the sound with the image. The most significant idea of this work was derived from the gap between playback logic and reproduction logic, and the discovery of the collision between the transfer of formats within film media.
The final screening method is a form of an impromptu performance by two projectors for images and two more for the sound. The impromptu performance of playing only the sound from two projectors is a challenge. Even though image and sound was not synthesized in order to convey a certain epic structure, it is not easy for improvisators to perform with the sound while the structure of sound which had already been selected is being played As the images were formed according to found-footage method, the forming of sound was done using the already recorded test tone records. However, to have as divers and end projects as possible according to the place and the environment in which the sound is played the performing material or tools were set unconfirmed. Only then can the non-relation, intended by this cooperation, between the image and the sound be set and accumulated.
