The Stream VIII

Video work

SAKURAI Hiroya [Japan]

Outline

This work is part of a series called The Stream, videos that use an artistic perspective to express natural alterations that have been artificially constrained. The film uses a channel as its setting, filming the movement of algae choreographed by the water current. The algae’s movement and sounds, which convey the play of water, look like a ballet. The theme of this work is the vibrancy of water as it flows through the manmade rice fields.
