Even in 2010s, TV is still a major mass media which transmits a bulk of information to an unspecified audience instantly. However, excessive information TV provides can easily overwrite people’s interest. The Tohoku earthquake and tsunami, which first triggered this project, is no exception.
This work aims to archive ephemeral sentiments, memories, and interests by accumulating single pictures of TV news footage taken with a camera fixed in front of LCD TV and further to deconstruct their withering process—namely, the transition from a catalyst of emotions to dusty documents.
