TOYAMA Mitsuo / digital / color / 14min. / 2017
A collection of playful works created using animations of physical laws such as gravity, collision, and inertia. While these laws are inorganic phenomena, care was taken to create a worldview that evokes loneliness and yearning. Short videos that had been released individually on the Internet have been assembled here as a single work.
