“Gift” [1980]




In "Gift," made in 1980 for his friends' wedding party, two elements - moving stones, and moving pictures on them - are expressed within one single animation.

Between 1973 and 1984, FUJIHATA produced animated works using a variety of techniques such as 8 mm film, video and computer graphics among others. He considers the works made at a time when such imaging techniques were in the middle of a dramatic evolution to be "origins that connect in various ways with [his] present work." The reexamination from a contemporary point of view of such works made in a different age is an attempt to reevaluate the artist's endeavors from a new perspective.
