The Cinema of Walking: Airship
27’ in loop, 2020
In February 2020, Lau began shooting in Kyoto, recording people crossing the Kamogawa River by the stepping stones. To capture this, Lau positioned herself in the middle of the Nijo Bridge and pointed her camera north towards the stepping stones. She began shooting whenever someone stepped along the slope to the stones and stopped when they had left the frame. Lau recorded for four hours each day, capturing a total of 100 people crossing the Kamogawa River.
