In octarine 2021 group exhibition, based on the common theme of curiosity, the curiosity of adults,'voyeurism', was unraveled. The project was planned with the hope of creating virtual observers called “Hollow Man” to recognize the damages of voyeurism commonly felt by modern people and to react proactively.
Hollow man / invisble gaze
Have you ever noticed someone who can't be specific?
Until now, we didn't recognize the existence and thought it was just a feeling of a moment. But it's not just a feeling, it's a real thing.
We call them the Hollowman.
The Hollowman is unknown from when, where it came from, and how many. It's just revealed that they blend in between humans and evolve instinctively out of a desire for voyeurism.
The Hollowman is a kind of smoke.
At first, they are mixed in the air around us and exist imperceptibly cloudy. As time goes by, Hollowman's intrinsic desire starts to watch the target. These voyages become increasingly distinctive embodiments of the Hollowman, which has a hazy figure like smoke, over time.
If the subject is left unaware of the Hollowman, subject will be restricted by the Hollowman's gaze, which subject feels vaguely. I don't know who it is, but I feel someone's eyes, I notice, and I lock myself in self-censorship thinking about everything I do, words, and thoughts in light of others. When the figure of the Hollowman becomes clear, it directly affects the subject, which causes the subject's life to flow in a completely different direction than before.
Hollowmen exist with different types of looks and properties depending on the times and circumstances. Not long ago, we succeeded in experimenting with actualizing them and shaping them into small samples. I'll tell you about the 12 types of Hollowman we've identified so fa
