Rondo of the Wall
I love the world of made things. It is important to me, so I gave it a special name and this work was created. The fact that the boundary between dream and reality is unknown, and yet fiction is still fiction, revolving around these axes. (It is like a dance, going round and round in a circle between reality and fiction!) Apart from the main theme of “What is fiction?”, I was also inspired by personal themes such as “floating, myself manipulating and myself being manipulated,” “links or well-made creations,” “big miniatures, familiar dreams, someone made them,” “dizziness, well made machines, the world,” and “green is scary”.I was also inspired by these personal themes.
What are attributes A property or characteristic that is common to something. This animation decomposes based on the common elements of the cubes, draws the elements of the cubes simply, and enjoys the texture and visual differences from the simple movements. This is an experimental work that attempts to defy preconceptions and bring a sense of pleasure through movement. At first glance, what I thought was just a cube was torn off like a piece of bread, and it is actually sugar, soft, hard, and stretchy. After watching it, I would be happy if you changed your point of view with attachment.
