CARDBOARD SEASONS
May 28 - August 2, 2009

Japanese animation artist Satoshi Nakashima makes two dimensional landscapes out of discarded cardboard. His films are constructed by filming the cardboard, making small changes and adjustments, and filming it again. He continues this painstaking process, giving each change an eighth of a second's screen time. This time-consuming method is an important aspect of his work. Nakashima only uses natural dyes.

His latest animation, "Cardboard Seasons", depicts a year in a valley that is now one of the largest industrial parks in Japan.
