Animation does not simply refer to images with moving symbols and pictures. It is the bodily phenomenon in which non-continuous still images look as if they are moving when shown in succession. The thought and time condensed in each of these non-continuous images invite the artist/viewer towards a new kind of timeline transcending experience and consciousness.
By animating abstract landscapes, the creator experiences ephemeral aspects of nature, culture and life; and by exhibiting her work, she shares these extremely personal and unrealistic landscapes with other people.
This exhibition shows the creation in progress of a short abstract landscape animation work set in Tokyo. While arranging drawings, sketches, test videos, parts of completed images etc. and aiming to expand awareness of animation’s expressive power, She also hopes to make this an opportunity for people to gain a multifaceted understanding of the thought process of making pictures. After carrying out this exhibition and acquiring new ways of thinking, she will ultimately go on to create a short animated film.
