We went for it without any hesitation.
We’ve formed the world at a quickening pace.
What on earth is this world that we’ ve created?

私たちは振り向くことなく突き進んだ
私たちは加速度的に世界を形成していった
私たちが築いたこの世界は、いったい何だったんだろうか?

Director’s Statement
Using a sheet of graph
paper, which is typically
used for architectural drawings,
I combined straight lines which
stretch out in three directions to
construct the visual. I think that
original fascination with animation is the
limitations. To challenge the limitations,
I started creating animation by using minimal
elements. Apparently, it looks like computer
graphics though it’s really digital animation
drawn by hand.

They’re on your tongue, under your armpits, in your guts and on your skin. In fact, any place you can think of there are microbes living on, under, or in between there. In their unimaginably large numbers, these micro-organisms determine our lives – even though we never see them. Micropia, the world’s first museum of micro-organisms (next to Artis Royal Zoo) in Amsterdam, reveals the invisible world of microbes.
