video projectors, FM radio waves and daily objects. Visitors can take a
part of memories
to home. Please bring a portable FM radio you have. ()
- Old photographs sometimes impress us when seeing them
- It could do because you find the common thing with those photographs.
This project is composed of installation works about The Miyamoto
Family and their stories.
I interweave my film, photographs and sound are interwoven with the
home movies and the family albums recorded by my late grandfather
Toshikazu into a work of art. In those records, both of us
capture the people close to ourselves and landscapes around our
house. That is to say, the memories of the family are recorded.
_ For instance, face. voice, and body of the self, lifestyle, memories
in childhood. expectation to the future
_ you might realize something taken for granted, but something
important through our work.

after the screening.
Also, we set up the new programme "remoscope", whose works are along
with the Lumiere rules. (please see the rules below)
There might be a new discovery in places you casually pass by, and
scenes you tend to miss by clipping out moving image. In this workshop,
we call for submissions of video works in accordance with The Lumiere
Rule, 6 possible techniques in 1895 when the Lumiere brothers invented
Cinematograph from the public. In addition to the screening of
submitted works, we have a discussion on reconsidering the role, the
potentials of moving image as a medium lying in everyday life and the
grammar of moving image.
remo encourages works that do not belong to a conventional medium such
as cinema and TV, and provides spaces for showing and viewing such
works, Our aim is for such works of individual expression to act as a
catalyst to provoke an interaction between makers and audience that
will transcend the barriers of that relationship.
Please bring your work at remo and fill in the form

Atsushi Suzuki, living in Kitakyushu, Fukuoka presents the video series
entitled "so what?" including 300 short pieces, as well as his new
works“8 Landscapes of Osaka”. The "so what?" video series consists
of simple short pieces Suzuki captures from ordinary landscapes and
scenes in daily life. These seemingly casual video works are filled
with humour, comicality, melancholy, loneliness and beauty hidden in
human behavior and nature Suzuki pursues. Suzuki's worldview will give
us the opportunity to rediscover the world and to have diverse
viewpoints through “so what?” series. We strongly recommend people who
are not so keen on video art. Once you see, you cannot take eyes off
Suzuki's worldview represented in his humane works!
