MiruFiyu (AKA MilleFeuille) confections pre-existing footage into allegories about banal violence and decadent melancholia. Clips of random daily life (sourced from YouTube) are recast as dramatic events imbued with cinematic qualities and mythic allusions. When the hard cuts and juxtapositions reveal a landscape of oppressive control, mundane normal gives way to the surreal. MiruFiyu’s intention is not to subsume the original footage, and its first context, into a singular idea, but rather to reveal the multivalence of found imagery.
MiruFiyu's name references a famous 'thousand leaves' pastry whose origin is unknown because like windblown leaves drifting over lands and through time, the 'thousand leaves' pastry is an eternal remix.
