Can Fish See The Same Face Twice
The film’s opening act was an impromptu performance. A random passerby climbed onto a highway sign structure and began performing Tai Chi. The passing traffic and drivers instantly became involuntary audiences of this sudden and inexplicable performance. The event naturally triggered the involvement of the police who tried to look for a reasonable explanation and solution. What the clip captures is the story of how a random passerby became the protagonist of a surreal happening. It is also, simultaneously, a performance art piece demonstrating how a random passerby can become the protagonist of a film. The sequence is followed by series of clips where a man personifies the essence of an audience and a woman the performer. Through a reimagining and re-conceptualizing of the performing and viewing process, the man-as-audience becomes wholly detached yet omnipresent, while the woman-as-performer becomes gradually non-existent under the spotlight.
