2’36” (continuous loop)

Made in response to the Great East Japan Earthquake in 2011. By using an obsolete, down-converting technique of digital to analog film, a circular motion of a crow flying in the sky is matched with a continuous loop of a film projector while subtly referring to the Earthquake as historical cycle, and a symbolic nut always remains in the center of the screen, as if one is watching a distant star.
