SAKATSUKI Sakana[Japan]


Taking place in a universe where people begin to fall into a never-ending sleep caused by the poison Tobiasu tree, this work depicts a solitary and tranquil world with a gentle touch. Events in different periods are divided into four parts in unchronological order and composed in different visual and narrative styles. The four parts resemble an elaborately put-together puzzle, but with some ambiguity, leaving room for the reader’s imagination.
