Artist Fiona Tan works in photography and video. Her latest project, combining the two art forms, is a montage of still frames of Mount Fuji, the symbol of Japan and a treasured historic site. Her images — snapshots, paintings, art photographs — were culled from many sources and eras, and from the Izu Photo Museum’s vast collection. Commentary muses on the cultural history of this singular peak. Notes the artist, “These thousands of images encircle the mountain like a cloud — revealing it and hiding it at the same time.” (Fiona Tan, 2016, 80 minutes)
