Here there is a man who is one of the lovable kind. He draws. He suffers. He discovers. He is alive.He doesn’t confront the world. The world is not there to know. The world is nowhere to be seen in such speed in motion.
The world can’t make him suffer. Everything he feels right and what he feels right is his absolute right.
Everything else is nothing. Everything else never exists and he knew about this from very long ago. and never let go of this truth.
He is the one of the kind and it’s his another usual day.

A work of animation drawn in the air with the illumination of a penlight. Footage was shot of the promenade connecting “Zō-no-hana Park” and a red-brick warehouse in Yokohama, the port city that “black ships” used to visit and the starting point of rail lines that carry goods to Tokyo. Life, the universe, and the birth of humanity. Humanity invented tools, encountered fire, and become capable of drawing on the walls of dark caves. Painting was born out of the wisdom of our ancestors who needed to pass something on to future generations. Here we can see the joy of discovering a new form of energy.
TOCHKA（NAGATA Takeshi + MONNO Kazue）

In 2006 they came up with “PiKAPiKA”, a ground-breaking visual style in which animation is created by combining long exposure and stop motion techniques in digital videography and drawing pictures with the illumination cast by a penlight suspended in the air. Employing this and other techniques, their activities in a variety of fields including commercial films and modern art transcend the boundaries of specific industries.
