    This is my final thesis project. I created info-graphic, motion piece. My objective is to make Japanese people to think about that everything happening here in Japan, isn't that normal. So I created this video from foreigner's point of view, rather than Japanese people's point of view. Both English and Japanese versions are available. By the way, please don't call me racist, because I am one of short, small eyes Japanese. 大学の卒業制作で制作した映像です。(日本語版) 日本で生活していると、当たり前すぎて気づかない「不思議な事実」を、海外で生活した経験も生かし、外国人の視点から統計とともに映像化しました。 笑いつつも、「なんか不思議だな」と考えてもらえれば幸いです。 日本語版と英語版を制作しました。

      Sorry, this English version of the video is not available now. I appliciate you guys comments and critiques. Kenichi -------------------- I created this information graphic motion piece as my final thesis project. my objective is to make Japanese people think about what is happening in their own country, and that some aspects of Japanese culture are not that normal. The deliberate English narrationoffers a point of view on Japan that isn't usually considered by Japanese people, and therefore conveys a 'foreign' perspective.

      • Bicycles, Rolling Stops, and the Idaho Stop

        The Oregon legislature is considering passage of a law that would allow bicycle riders to treat stop signs as yield signs. These "rolling stops" would allow bike riders to preserve some of the momentum they depend upon for efficient travel, just so long as they don't infringe on the safety and rights of others. The law is based on one that's been successful in Idaho for the last 27 years, so it's come to be known as the "Idaho Stop" law. There's some controversy - and whole lot of misunderstanding - surrounding the proposed Idaho Stop law. I thought I could clear some of it up with the magic of animation. Music: "Celebrated Shoo Fly Galop" by W.L. Hayden, performed by Lucas Gonze (soupgreens.com and gonze.com). Used under Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 3.0 license. UPDATE: This particular piece of legislation failed to make it to a vote: http://bikeportland.org/2009/04/20/no-idaho-stops-in-oregon-law-fails-to-win-necessary-support-17477 However, the notion of lightening regulation on bikes hasn't gone away entirely, most recently turning up in the "gut and stuff" placeholder language of a law that would allow people on bikes to proceed were a stoplight not to sense them: http://bikeportland.org/2011/02/02/false-alarm-on-idaho-stop-law-47209 And the idea of Idaho Stop has proven popular all over the world, as is indicated at least in part by the continued spread of this video, which was originally meant only for the eyes of Oregon legislators and citizens, to convince them of the common sense behind this law.

          Find me on Facebook at www.facebook.com/pahnlart The making of a stencil painting. I have been stenciling since 2003 and I thought it was about time I gave people a little insight into how I work. Cutting stencils isn't a spectacle, it's done in solitude and so I think a lot of my friends, artist or not, will find this interesting. The painting featured in the video is titled 'And I'm Not Going To Take This Anymore'. Photos and more details about the piece can be found at www.pahnl.co.uk/store/anymore.php This piece is now available as a screen print and so if you're interested head to www.pahnl.co.uk/store/anymoreprint.php for more details.

            The signage system of the alternative music festival DISFORM 2012 has two purposes: to direct the audience, informing where each area is located; and to enrich the whole experience of the festival itself, by creating an engaging dialogue between the signs and their surroundings. The animation and the editing are directly affected by the live music performances, using OpenGL technology. The additional layer of information is dynamic and updated in real-time in order to help the audience of the festival.
