ISHIDA Takashi / 1999 / 16mm / color / 7min.
Amber sunlight shines into the corner of the room from the window. The shadows projected on the wall erode each other away, and as this increases, the three-dimensional shape of the room flickers between the actual walls and an illusory vision produced by the flatness of a drawing. It is a miraculous room whose shape changes with the spectator’s perceptual actions. Animation in 2.5 dimensions. (From the IFF 1999 catalogue)
