Nevermore is a project to literally paint back an ordinary scene—which is lost in the COVID-19 pandemic all over the world—in actual size by a paintbrush with chroma key processing for moving images. The fruit of this project is a video installation using time-lapse movies.
Today, virtual reality—a huge digital platform increasing the width, depth, and density rapidly—has been infiltrating into our reality. Computers often make us reconfirm replicability/un-replicability, traceability/un-traceability, reversibility/irreversibility, and momentariness/permanence of various technology, and our reality is made from intersections between them and material actuality. Nevermore plainly gives shape to the force and functionality of the image in the current “Reality” situation.
The title Nevermore is a reference to the words of the Raven in the Narrative poetry “The Raven” by Edgar Allan Poe.
