Wave follows wave. Real movements of the ocean, redrawn by computer-generated animation, flow into the picture frame in relation to real-time wind speeds, their visibility defined by natural light levels. The monotonous sound further emphasises the endless irregularity of the observed.

“3D Computer Graphics have powers for making new images. They are mostly used for entertainment. However, they can surely be applied more to creating new methods and ideas for exploring experimental expressions.” Y. Nishimura


Japanese visual artist Yoshiki Nishimura (1954) previously explored the combination of water imagery with 3D computer graphics in other films shown at the Ji.hlava IDFF. In An Observation (2013) he focused on the upsidedown surface of the ocean, while Mayhem (2016) was a fascinating visualization of boiling water. In Fascinating Moments (2014), he looked at snowflakes, and in Last 12 Minutes (2016) he transformed an airport runway into a universe of light.
