I have always been interested in the highly entertaining genre of “B-movie,” especially the interpretation of its images in popular culture. Sometimes, I feel that the overdramatic performance, plot, and acting alienate the audience even though it is very entertaining. The audience is merely watching “movies” while the experiences are never represented. Such a poor taste surprisingly evokes a speculation on image/ entertainment.
Therefore, I imitate the scenes of B-movies (sometimes I even make my own combination), creating overdramatic effect which puts audience in an alienated state by poor-quality props. I learn from B-movies. I want the audience to see the images instead of feeling any sensory stimulation, hoping that my overly relaxing (distorted) attitude and values, as a jerk speaking nonsense and lies, will allow the audience to observe how they are alienated when watching a B-movie. SMOKEY is a fragmentized imagination in a science fiction movie. The character, who might belong to a biochemical troop or an alien warrior from other planet, walks toward us in the rainbow-like mist with rays of light behind him. He creates a mysterious atmosphere by producing mist, while it is later revealed that the mysterious light comes from two motorcycles. The heroic figure from a science-fiction movie in fact is an actor trying hard to be heroic.
