Jaime Jesus C. Pacena II / PHILIPPINES



This video shows a first person point-of-view of the artist as he explores different spaces and places in Rikuzentakata City.

Going through doors upon doors of restaurants, shops, public spaces, temporary homes, bathroom, toilets

and portalets, accommodation, construction place and traces of the tsunami incident. The artist hopes to connect all these

places together, breaking the idea of distance and inviting the people of Rikuzentakata to be a part of this one continuous

journey of connection and co-existence.
