Participated in the project “Rapt!” related to the 2006 Australia-Japan Year of Exchange, Takatani created the video installation through 3 weeks residency in Australia.
Takatani captured the Australian sky in Perth, Uluru and Melbourne. He filmed the endless horizon and the clouds rolling across the perfectly clear skies using a fixed camera, and after transferring the images to a computer, condensed the elements of time and space. A fiber-optic taper placed on top of the small monitor, the images were condensed even further. The resulting density made it seem as if the entire world could into the palm of one’s hand.
