KOSEMURA had been exploring the relationship between time and space in pictures through the video created from a large quantity of compiling photographs. By paying equal attention to both the stop and the motion. She quietly conveys the importance for everybody who shares time in this world to continue to look hard, even if it is difficult to recognize the whole of the world.
