イラストレーターU.G.サトーにより発表された、「TREEDOM」と名付けられた一連のポスターに時間と動きを与え、ポスターの凝縮された表現から得たインスピレーション によって、新たなアニメーションへの飛躍を試みた作品


In 1993, Illustrator U.G.Sato published a series of posters to be named "Treedom". These were expressed the present situation of GAIA through trees's anger, sadness and plesure.

I thoght to give the posters time and action. I tried a jump to new animation by the inspirations acquired from the posters.
