Hiraki Sawa: Lenticular, Artist's Video

Image for

We invite you to discover the work of Hiraki Sawa whose videos and animations create a strange world in which familiar objects perform unbelievable, beautiful acts. In Lenticular everyday items do fantastic things: toy aeroplanes take off into domestic flight paths, vinyl records unravel and clocks and teapots grow legs.

For his exhibition at DCA, Sawa has created a new film shot at Dundee’s Mills Observatory. The work was inspired by the self-taught astronomer who is employed by the Observatory, who shared his knowledge of the solar system and the stars beyond with the artist. This newly commissioned work is a loose portrait of the astronomer and the planetarium itself.
