Run Fish Run

Opened on April1, 2011. Celebrating Earth Day to Earth Month. A group of artists mounted an exhibition dedicated to awareness and fundraising to promote the conservation of the enviroment.
Run Fish Run is a multi-channel video installation. Its elements are 100 pcs. hanged-no. 12 fish hooks used for sharks, tuna and other big fish, nets, and projections with sound.

The videos were shot in Danjugan Island, Negros Occidental. Run Fish Run is inspired by the movie Forrest Gump...Run Forrest Run. Whenever there is danger all you have to do is run away. Actually, its suppose to be Swim Fish Swim, but this work focuses on humans. As you enter the gallery, it gives you a feeling of drowning, trapped, and pulls you one step backwards. The fish hooks create an illusion of pain in ones imagination.
