On the collinear and reflected on the water
(2018/ Video/ 4 min/ loop projection is also possible)

Rei Hayama is staring at the projected image of the face of the caged Emu (bird), which is one of her own collection of 8mm film shot by herself at the zoo. She starts talks about what human see in/through the emu and what the emu sees in/through human. But in one moment, there's a drop of tear falls from the eye of emu. Even if this one drop of emu's tear is just a kind of its physiology to removing dust or something from its eyes, yet it moves the human's mind. This emu's eye is not only to make us perceive human figure that reflected in its eye, but it shows something far beyond. "On the collinear and reflected on the water" requires the viewers to focus very carefully for the moment of the tear falls, and also they need to keep thinking about what the viewer sees. Therefore, this video work is also possible to be presented as a loop projection specification.

葉山は自分自身が動物園で撮影した、檻の中のエミュー(鳥)の顔を写した8mmフィルムの映像を見つめている。彼女は人間がエミューに見ているものと、エミューが人間に見ているものについて話を始める。一瞬、エミューの眼から一滴の涙が落ちるのが見える。このエミューの一滴の涙がたとえ埃や何かを眼から取り除くための生理現象にすぎないとしても、涙は鑑賞者の心に訴えかける。このエミューの眼は、そこに映り込む人間の姿を認識させるだけでなく、それ以上の何か、はるか遠いものを示す。この映像作品は、鑑賞者に涙の落ちる瞬間に集中するように要求するほか、鑑賞者がみることについて考え続けることを要求する。したがって、この作品はループ再生でも上映可能な仕組みで製作されている。
