synopsys:
The space-less is still in a space, because it is on the continuous horizon.

This film is about the individuality in the serial solidarity of the individual;
how to be single? In the continuous identity of atoms, what can divide it from the plurality?
What can divide it from the continuous time?

It is a stop-motion painted animated film originally painted on a 10.8m by 1m (35.4ft by 3.3ft) wide paper canvas. 
Focusing on the different temporalities between painting and the moving image,
he creates paintings in which time has a linear progression, and creates animation with those materials.
The movement of time in the moving image is substituted in the painting by the physical movement
of viewers body, and at the same time, all the time within the moving image is stored within a single space in the painting.
