SHIMURAbros’s film is part of a research project initiated during their residency at NTU CCA Singapore and continues their investigations on the ontology and language of film. A series of events are woven together through a focus on light as a protagonist and power source in the cinematic process. The layering of events is translated into film through the simultaneous blending of three sources of lighting: an ancient coconut lamp, an amalgam of city lights and the masterful lighting setup during the recording. Playing with perception, the work emerges as an abstract picture until it slowly dissolves into a still-life image of the industrial scenery in the port area of Singapore.
