HAPPENINGText: Naoko Fukushi

Chisato and Futori had prepared the basic elements on their own mac’s. Every 10 minutes, they swapped seats to use a mac which was connected to the projector and made a collage with their elements. While sitting in front of another mac, they drew new elements. Looking at their process closely, I recollected a children’s TV programme which I enjoyed in my childhood; a pair of boys and girls creates something or dances with a lot of children. I was really excited to see a dreamy and fantastic world being spread in front of me.

There might be an accident in their process. Showing a variety of facial expressions, they kept creating. The audience must have been imagining some stories looking at this picture which seemed to have a story behind it.

We can’t forget Kentaro’s sound effect as one of the factors which brought us into a fantastic and dreamy world. Making harmony with their process, he gave charming or mysterious sounds, which were sometimes repeated as a graphic technical term using electronic dictionary’s voice function. Chisato and Futori seemed to be influenced by its voice like “I don’t want to use purple now but the voice is saying to use purple!”.

At the end of the story, a big black thing (might be monster or demon) appeared on the screen and told us the ending. With its appearance in the colourful world, there must be a different ending in every audience’s mind.
