A film about “the end”. The end has already started and ended. We call it “the end” in order to perceive it and make it “visible”, but it had already passed when we called it “the end”, or “the end” is always penetrating the present, so we can not recognize the time of the end. The end has already started and ended.

This work is the first film of the series called “PIXCANNING”. The word “PIXCANNING” is coined from “pix(picture/pixel)” and “scanning”. It’s a method to scoop up(scanning) elements that pass through the meshes of perception(pixel) when images(picture) appear or images are constructed.
