~ is an on-going online project started in 2021 as part of expensive to be poor, an e-commerce website project. Apart from trading artworks we are using its landing page on the website and Instagram account to do an online art project. ~ generating a ripple of video clips focusing on ‘movement’, echoing one another. Participants have been invited to select or make a short video clip in response to the previous person’s clip, thus continuing the formation, creating a process in which each person drives each other continuously.
Following the invitation to present this project onsite for the first time, we continue the notion of contributed movement by inviting Yuki Kishino to conceive this first time onsite installation. Yuki Kishino is a Japanese artist based in Berlin who is invested in time-based media. His works are observations on technological developments and shifts in psychological states.
‘Recent technological advancement has made video streaming easier than ever before. Not only can we start online broadcasting with just a smartphone, but we can also easily participate in remote events live. Video streaming serves fresh content to us with little wait time; no longer do we wait for recordings. Originally conceived as an online project, "~" is designed to be publicly accessible on www.expensivetobepoor.net at any time. When such a project is hosted in a physical space, it could potentially evolve into two invitations: one for offline audiences to be part of a broadcasting and another for online audiences to watch the events remotely. The installation presents the making of a live stream which only offline visitors can experience. Once visitors settle in, in front of the screen, they would become part of the live stream. During the opening hours of the gallery, the live stream replaces the original content on the project's webpage; outside of the opening hours, the original content is then resumed.’ _ Yuki Kishino
