In these videos, as Lee Bul comments, there is no ‘single controlling perspective’ and no sense of an ‘eye’ behind the camera. As a result, we feel more fully involved in the scenes that they portray, which include a night-time drive along the elevated highway that used to run through the heart of Seoul. Providing viewers with a kind of second skin, the smooth contours of Live Forever III allude to the human form, and recall the sleek bodies of her earlier cyborgs.
