OBSERVER/OBSERVED
(and other works of video semiology)

by Takahiko IIMURA
1972-1998 / b&w / sound / 1S / 22' 00




"Observer/Observed/Observer" is to create a semiology of video as a video work rather than a written text." - Takahiko iimura
"Iimura is a significant and singular filmmaker, but also one of the most important conceptual artist working in any medium." -Malcolm Le Grice
" Iimura is at his best deconstructing and reconstructing the video apparatus. Elemental and elegant, these works confront issues of language and semiotics through forms of direct address. "- Peter d'Agostino, professor of media arts,Temple University, Philadelphia.
"A formal trilogy which investigates the relationships between concrete representation and phonetic communication. Here the respected video artist, as often, employs a deadpan infection to play against a serious conceptual impulse."- Winner of director's choice award, Black Maria Film & Video Festival, Jersey City
