SATO Masahiko + EUPHRATES
This experimental film was made using an evolution of the animation technique of rotoscoping, which is normally used to create animation by tracing the outlines of objects. In this film, however, the movements of a ballerina were accurately traced, then the lines through which she danced and mathematically manipulated animation were generated and synthesized. Through the interrelation of live-action footage and animation, the work seeks a new form of beauty that differs from that which is intrinsic to ballet.
