We went for it without any hesitation.
We've formed the world at a quickening pace.
What on earth is this world that we' ve created?

私たちは振り向くことなく突き進んだ
私たちは加速度的に世界を形成していった
私たちが築いたこの世界は、いったい何だったんだろうか?

Director's Statement
Using a sheet of graph
paper, which is typically
used for architectural drawings,
I combined straight lines which
stretch out in three directions to
construct the visual. I think that
original fascination with animation is the
limitations. To challenge the limitations,
I started creating animation by using minimal
elements. Apparently, it looks like computer
graphics though it's really digital animation
drawn by hand.
