The Stream VIII

Video work

SAKURAI Hiroya [Japan]


This work is part of a series called The Stream, videos that use an artistic perspective to ex- press natural alterations that have been arti cially constrained. The lm uses a channel as its setting, lming the movement of algae choreographed by the water current. The al- gae’s movement and sounds, which convey the play of water, look like a ballet. The theme of this work is the vibrancy of water as it ows through the manmade rice elds.
