“Letters” is a poetic representation of a delayed conversation between two friends living in distant lands in the covid year. When the audience enters the room, they have to decide where to watch every time the video changes.





This piece started when Sae sent an email suggesting exchanging videos like exchanging letters. Zuhui misunderstood the idea, lost her passcode to her Gmail account. 5 months later, Zuhui finally sent Sae her 45 pieces of 15-seconds video footages of her past months. Sae walked through the video collection, and some of the footages reminded her of her video footages from the period of time. So she walked through her video collection, and some of them reminded her of Zuhui’s videos. Sae combined two video collections at a rhythmical pace like a conversation andd projected them onto the walls facing each other.
