Daisuke Nagaoka's animated works depict a tranquil world where magnificent landscapes and human bodies are superimposed to reveal how layers of time, as well as life and death, are interconnected. Using only pencil, he repeatedly draws and erases lines on paper while a video camera is recording. The work presented here is an original drawing from this process, which retains both lines as well as erasures. A work by Nagaoka was presented in New York earlier this year at The Jewish Museum in "Sights and Sounds: Global Film and Video," curated by Yukie Kamiya, Director of Japan Society Gallery.
