Capitalism is A Movement Over Geography

PanAsia from nsr on Vimeo.

Capitalism is A Movement Over Geography is a digital scroll made of a collection of panoramic photos taken by Kyong Park from the cities of the New Silk Roads. Presented on eight continuous plasma screens, installed in a circular pattern, Capitalism is A Movement Over Geography reflects both the linearity of the Old Silk Roads and the circumventing forces of international flights and airports that define the New Silk Roads. As the digital scroll moves horizontally from one monitor screen to another one, the static image of the photographs begins to take on the dynamic quality of moving images, embodying the conflict between the immovability of a physical place and nomadic condition of its identity. The static images in movement also suggest the fleeting quality of a particular time
