Waves keep rolling at the screen, breaking, forming powerful eddies, leaving traces of their energy. They are made of plasticine. The animation becomes the visible expression of the intuitive forming of and the resistance offered by the raw material, accompanied by minimalist electronic sounds. With this film Ryo Orikasa creates a compelling haiku based on the works of the Japanese “poet of silence”, Yoshiro Ishihara.
