    "The work was created based on a concept of “performing” Henri Matisse’s cut-paper collage, Jazz using a software called “Fanta Vision.” Matisse’s medium transition from oil painting to the cut-out collages is, for animator Furukawa, becomes paper to computer. The coloration created by the jagged lines and scanning lines emphasizes the materiality of the computer." - Fusako Matsu

    "Drawings made on an Apple’s Mac computer were shot with a 16mm film camera. A nod to technical innovation, the work begins with the iconic “bouncing balls,” representative of the first appearance of sound film. The strings of short motion graphics are the harbingers of GIF animation trend." - Fusako Matsu

    "Parts of the female body, filmed in the light of a self-made strobe, are multiply exposed and flicker as they perform a graphical dance. In this work, reminiscent of the animation of Norman McLaren, Nakamura’s fetishism transcends physical eroticism and is dedicated to creating abstract visual pleasure. The music, evoking the gamelan, was composed with a computer program that Nakamura personally designed." (Akihiro Suzuki)

    Footage of a girl swinging on a swing in a park at night is transformed into a fantastical realm through re-shooting that generates multiple exposures. Many-layered images of playground equipment reflecting light create luminous abstract patterns. This work poetically established the cinematic vocabulary of Nakamura’s visionary world revolving around the image of the young girl. The magical effects of 8mm film wonderfully transform everyday scenery into another world. (Akihiro Suzuki)
