This film was made using 3D computer graphics based on a reality-based image.
The passing clouds in the sky were taken by a video camera and transformed into graphics. They are almost as real as you see the clouds in the sky. It is just they are seen through a different set of eyes. "Daily situations were expressed in an abstract way from another viewpoint." My aesthetic taste is not involved much there.

Technically, "displacement-mapping" was applied to convert the clouds images into a bumpy surface in cyberspace. Following their intensity of contrast, such as brighter parts appearing higher and darker parts lower, topographical patterns happened to appear.
