Animated short film

KATO Ikuo [Japan]


This animated short was inspired by the artist’s childhood memories. When children first take notice of the larger world that exists beyond their own consciousness, they react with embarrassment and other complex emotions. It is such experiences that gradually lead to maturity. Produced on a computer, the work was designed to have an analog appearance.
