‘What is the virtuality?’

In the situation the boundary between the actuality and the virtuality is currently being collapsed, traditional essentialism focusing on actuality is experimentally reconstituted by reversal logic based on Rene Magritte’s surrealistic painting, <Ceci n'est pas une pipe (This is not a pipe)>.

All of the frames were caught frame-by-frame from printed matters through macro lens and animated by Kinestasis. Movements and rhythms were created by camera works.

The actuality and the virtuality reflect mutually in the form of decalcomania, and benday dots, the main texture of this film, from printed matters represent mass production and uniformity which got extreme nowdays.
