One Hundred Years Later

One Hun­dred Years Lat­er
ani­ma­tion
2012

One Hun­dred Years Lat­er is a 20-minute ani­ma­tion using altered ukiyo‑e prints as back­drops, made in the wake of the Tohoku earth­quake in 2011. A series of vignettes depict scenes of pub­lic and pri­vate life being over­tak­en by ani­mistic forces and crea­tures (yokai); these crea­tures alle­go­rize human dis­as­ter and envi­ron­men­tal col­lapse, and its after­math. Flows of oil paint on water evoke new forms of becom­ing.
