1994
Country: JAPAN
Duration: 8 mins
Available Format/s: DVD / Digibeta tape / SD Digital file

Shown as part of a six monitor installation at The Kitchen in New York, Performance: A I U E O N N SIX explores the relationship between ‘…images and sounds and how they correspond to movement and space – a theme Iimura discovered in the work of Jacques Derrida’. Wired, May 1996.
In Performance: A I U E O N N SIX Iimura ‘…uses a Sony G-System texture mapping facility to grotesquely distort the screen-image self-portrait, as he enunciates to camera the vowel sounds of the Japanese and Roman alphabet.’
William Raban, Frieze, 1996
