Eye Protection Exercise 眼保健操
USA 2017
16mm film, color, sound

     Accompanying with the music remixed from the everyday exercise for Chinese students, Eye Protection Exercise playfully examines the concept of cinema as a collective viewing experience. All the 1000~ frames are hand-carved on 16mm film frames (0.404 in × 0.295 in) and transformed to digital form through self-projecting on a screen. With the roughness of the hand-drawn images and the low resolution that comes with the process of digitalizing, it raises questions upon the experience of seeing under the industrial trend of higher resolution.
