2-channel video installation, HD 16:9, 19:48 min
Dimensions variable

‘HENOKO’ is a video installation work in which two wooden panels are hinged together like a diptych, juxtaposing and projecting moving images that were collected in different locations in Okinawa, Japan. The two screens talk to each other and the main focus of images is on a daily performance that protesters carry out every day. The narrative is led by an elusive voice (or no voice). still remains inconclusive.
