My project “Revived Zombie Frogs Underwater Ballet,” originally started from 2009 has been consummated as a video work. This work takes a form of MTV showing dead frog’s dance controlled by Midi controller and Midi signal. For the avoidance of cruelty to animals, dead frog bodies originally used in a medical dissection experiment were re-used for this work.
Because of my strong affinity with CONTROL, the control of people and animals, I have been creating my works by using technology and various media. Such a control totally relies on the cerebration of human and they cannot escape from the physiological reality. Yet they use their bodies to create devices so they can break away from these limitations while they are being controlled by their physical form or illness.
I have strongly desired to substantiate a cross-cutting collaboration work. Art itself is a small discipline and I am hoping to learn more by combining it with other disciplines.
Finally I would like to express my sincere appreciation for Fukuoka Asian Art Museum and all technical specialists and their staff members who cooperated with my art-making.
Triptych, is the first of 2 video installations Daniel Askill directed for the leading German architectural design brand, Dornbracht. Working with the renowned Cologne-based creative agency Meiré und Meiré, Askill and The Brainstormclub were given creative freedom to create the films.
Shot on location with our partners Collider at Fox Studios, Sydney, the project utilised high speed camera work and a 360 degree time slice rig. The films demonstrate the relationship between body, water and spirit.

I love TIME-LAPSE photography! And Bavaria’s capital MUNICH! And the music of THE AMERICAN DOLLAR! From the bottom of my heart. And this is what I made of it. MUNICH IN MOTION is made of over 25,000 still photographs shot on the Canon 1DX (except three scenes) between September 2012 and January 1st 2013 (approximately 150h of pre/post/production).
