Kiri no uta (mist song)

Atsushi Ogata

1991, 06:00 minutes, colour


Through the use of slow motion and a monotonous sound track, "kiri no uta" (mist song) is intended to transform my personal experience into a universal experience that stimulates the viewers' senses, altering their perception of time, and providing them with moments for their own reflection...
Traveling through a mist covered landscape... not reaching... not seeing... yet moving... My eyes began to caress the layers of trees enveloped by the mist... I let the moment take over... The trees began to dance... I felt their energy refreshing my senses... It was so engaging I became unconscious of the passage of time...
