Salaryman series

Digital video




I had taken a train every day for commuting to school during 10 years, since junior high school until the end of the university. The rhythm of the person who go to the work was there, and it imprinted in my memory. Every salaryman’s faces are presented in anonymous way in this video. When we can’t see something, we try to imagine the visual to complement. Sartre defines the ‘analogon’ as a « material object used for the manifestation of the imaged object. »So I presented their face as an analogon, not to just present their impersonal, but to let to imagine all the individuality of salarymans in rush hours.
