This music video, "Dynamics of the Subway,is from Haisuinonasa's 1st Album,
"Animal Bodies," which was released in May, 2012.
Each note from the instruments is represented by a geometric shape in the animation; while these shapes move in sync with the song, they also form the parts that create the subway itself.
"Forest and Trees" is an installation of moving images and sounds employing 12 digital photo frames.
The animation and its sound effects playing through the internal speakers of each frame gradually
come together to form music.
This work will be exhibited at Museum of Contemporary Art Tokyo.

It’s not always the easiest place to go skate and be productive, but just being on your skateboard, you get to see the city in a way normal people would not.”
Soul of a Scrap Yard was was originally published by the New York Times Op-Doc Series.
Across the street from Citi Field in Queens there is a hidden corner of New York known as the Iron Triangle. It’s a shantytown of scrap yards and auto body shops, flanked by three intersecting streets that form a triangle. In the morning hours, as people convene on the dirt roads while sea gulls flock overhead, the neighborhood of Willets Point seems a world away from what many of us think of New York City, with its upswell of luxury apartments and gentrification....
