From a multispecies perspective, “I could once speak under two moons” tries to grasp the origin of human centric perception. It starts
from looking into an ancient creation mythology “Cheonji-wang bon-puri / 천지왕본풀이'' from Jeju- Island (S.Korea), which depicts the creation of the cosmos, as a collision of two contra elements (earth/sky).
Based on the creation myth, this project re- narrates the mythology from the perspective of soldiers and moths.
I could once speak under two mooons” involves 3D animation, recorded game scenes , filmed materials, and found footage. The narrative is tangled up with a story of two moths; scientific explanation, why the moths fly around the light; a story of a soldier, who tried to avoid the mandatory military service due to his pacifistic reason; the original Jeju mythology.
