Sijia Luo + TOCHKA
Sijia Luo, a graduate of Tokyo University of the Arts Graduate School with a specialization in animation in 2020, is known for her short films that have garnered recognition at international film festivals in China, the US, Europe, and beyond. Her work has also been featured in significant group exhibitions, including “RAM PRACTICE 2021-Exhibition” in Yokohama in 2021 and “Phenakistoscope- Stroll The Line Series” at MoCA Pavilion in Shanghai in 2019.
In 1998, they formed the filmmaker/creative duo “TOCHKA”. They invented the animation production method “PiKA PiKA”, which combines the techniques of long exposure photography and stop motion animation. By using light to draw lines in the air, anyone can create animation. TOCHKA’s fields of activity range from experimental animation to contemporary art.
Their film “PiKA PiKA Lightning Doodle Project” won the Grand Prix in the Lab Competition at International Short Film Festival, Clermont-Ferrand 2008. Their film “TRACK” won the Grand Prix in the non-narrative short category at Holland Animation Film Festival 2016
