Artist Statement:


    The words “animation” and “animism” both derive from the Latin word “anima,” which means life principle or soul. This work is a visual expression of the triangular realm formed by these three words. Animism here represents Asia’s ancient religion, and the title, Kashikokimono, stands for “the innumerable gods and deities of Japan.” With this work, I have tried to create images that express this profusion of gods representing all of creation. With the goal of creating a new type of organic visual expression, I used a combination of hand-drawn animation and software-based generative animation.
