Bored-up is a video installation that extracts musical and visual codes from a pattern, which repeats itself in various speeds. One sees a mobile projected video, which moves on a curved screen forming circular 360º encompassing movie screen. The video is a record of repeating days of one’s life, which was shot with a camera on a turning table. In its production artist says: “The camera recorded its surroundings while I was interacting with the room settings.” The music is a “repeating pattern” which is played in different speed rates. The speed of audio track as well as the speed of the moving video gradually increases to the point that one hears a flat noise like note, and sees a blurry image.
