The two, who met each other by chance, have encounters with a variety of characters, such as a girl dressed in a tooth suit for her part-time job, a soldier, and an ape-man on the verge of extinction. . Beyond time and space, the story rolls toward its end while these interactions play out.

Designed to be projected in a planetarium or a hemisphere shaped environment, the piece explores artist's personal history, dreams and imaginary visions in a complex 12 seconds of eternal return. The images show events that are all related in some form or another and show chain of reactions with no obvious beginning or the end as one loop branches out to create new multiple repetitions. The images are created by few elements of motion time lagged to give complex jungle of visions interfering with each other.

Autumn from Antonio Vivaldi “The Four Seasons”

WADA Atsushi

Dear Mr. Vivaldi, First, I apologize for setting your music to animation without your permission. Furthermore, I know it was presumptuous of me to make my own interpretations of your work and introduce otters and various other animals that you almost certainly didn’t have in mind. But, I really felt a strong desire to use animals in visualizing your work, which portrays human activities set in the autumn. I wanted to depict “autumn” that includes it all - humans and animals, hunters and the hunted, dreams and reality. I appreciate your understanding. Sincerely, Atsushi Wada
