The moment I saw me (2015)

2-channel video installation (HD video, sound, 5’35”)

… Adopting a different yet similar approach, Hui Ye in The moment I saw me generates, via a mesmerizing double projection, the picture of a subject in continuous motion, always missing itself and finally encountering itself in a duplication situation where the figure is on the platform, while being in the train at the same time – a graceful and subtle parable of a nomadic being in search of itself.
