Step Counter aims to explore the possibility of using numbers as a visual representation to present a cinematic narrative experience. Appropriating Jacques Tati’s classic “Playtime,” it eliminated every optical element from the original movie and only display the walking pace number from the movie characters. Thus turned a movie into a simple step counter and created a bore but unique cinematic experience, as well as imagination. It supposed to provides a new perspective on observing and understanding walking, the human instinct.
