telepathy

2009, Video installation, HD video, 10 drawing sets, 11:36 min., 21x29cm(each).

In this piece, Yamashita and Kobayashi, having lived and worked together for 17 years, attempt to communicate without words.

Out of 1000 attempts at telepathic exchange, mostly failures, they miraculously (or perhaps coincidentally) succeeded ten times.

A video of those ten instances was displayed alongside the drawings created during the project.
