Focusing on pine tree behind “*Noh stage” (能舞台), which acts as “依り代”, the holy spirit came from the air and alighted on it, I aim to merge Animation as contemporary method, Animism inherited from ancient time, and ANIMA (=spirit).

*Noh stage is designated a national important cultural property.

 

「松宿る神霊、空より降り注ぐ」

能舞台の松が神霊を宿す依り代と言うところに着眼した、現代的なアニメと、古代より続くアニミズム、それらの根底にあるアニマの融合を目指した作品です。
