Flower, knot, water, curve

This short film was made on the most Southwest Islands of Japan. This film follows the rituals and natural order by which the making of a textile comes into being.

Fascinated by the concept of musubi (deity), as a particle, wave, (or light) and how it is identical to the characteristic of the spiritual life force that makes physical objects come to life exists in a form. Somehow like a particle or subtle energy. A ‘particle’ that, by the force of the musubi, can form new substances. 

This form, energy, or light has been recognized by the Islanders as an immense life force, deity, nature, the Kamui, or a macrocosm that participates in creating this physical world. 

This film was made possible with the generous support of the Mondriaan Fund.
