Shizuku no kotoba (Dripping words)

Video work

MIYAOKA Mizuki / ISHIKAWA Yasuaki [Japan]


This work expresses the natural phenomenon of dew dripping through gravity, using video of rain and rain drops superimposed over associated onomatopoeia, and music composed only of the onomatopoeia. It is a poetic video expression that interweaves words with nature, based on a similarity between drops of water clustering and dripping on a window, and the way in which “words” are formed as accumulation of letters.
