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.

ADAM LUPTON

Canadian artist Adam Lupton‘s gaze explores psychological and sociological struggles in modern society. Painting in oil, blurring lines between realism and expressionism helps Lupton probe the internal and external dialogue faced in his multi-directional narratives. His recent work pits moments of choice against the visualization of their outcomes: temporal planes coexisting on a singular surface. With the notion of quantum mechanics having every possible outcome to a situation realized in splintered universes, he paints figures with varied levels of connection to reality.

EL TRIO by Sebastián Lara + Roberto Sedano

Esta serie de floreros fabricados en cerámica esmaltada, están inspirados en los tradicionales tríos de música mexicana.

Como una abstracción de la vestimenta de estas agrupaciones que se conforma de saco y corbatín. Las piezas cerámicas presentan un corte distintivo en la parte frontal.
