Here, There and Everywhere

‘Here, There and Everywhere’ is a single channel video which shows the obsession often recognized as a women’s characteristic through singing the famous song by The Beatles. The song’s lyric and melody is romantic and sweet, but performed by the artist herself, the context of the song changes into infatuation. By self-filming on the iPhone, the obsession focuses more on the self than the hypothetical lover, which reflects the current reproduction of oneself through prodigal use of technological mobile platforms. In the video, the iPhone is installed as a part of the exhibition just as the phone getting charged in daily life, and keeps on singing the song endlessly. This reflects the contemporary technological life we live – like a phantom, here, there and everywhere.
