The 4th Wall
DETAILS OF THE WORK
AWARDS 2022 FINALISTS
The 4th Wall" is a VR film that takes the concept of the "fourth wall" existing in the performing arts as an opportunity to examine the reality of the future.
It has been said that the 4th Wall is the boundary between the artwork (fiction) and reality, and that its presence encourages an immersive viewing experience for the audience.
I like the production in which the "fourth wall" is broken.
When a performer on stage suddenly stares at us, or when the film unexpectedly shows a writing block or a camera.
I feel uneasy as if the ground I believed in is gone, and I feel a sense of relief when I reconnect with a new definition of reality within myself.
I always wonder if this is what "reality" is.
Today, with the development of XR technology, the scheme in which the other side is fiction and this side is reality is no longer valid.
In a world where reality and unreality, and even the division between them, is losing its weight, where is the certain reality that still allows us to feel "I am here"?
