Artist Statement:


    This piece tells the story of a youth transformed into an old person by modern society. Encountering a rice bowl with a traditional Japanese pattern, he uses his childlike imagination to heal his heart just a little bit. The warmth of the animation was created using Japanese paper and India ink, then After Effects and Premier on a Macintosh.
