Deep Sea Tentacle

Deep Sea Tentacle is reminiscent of Norman McLaren’s early shorts.
One major theme in Kojirō Shishido’s work is reflections. He shows us beautiful reflections not only in surfaces like water, mirrors, but also in moving tentacles. Shishido renders his realistic backdrops images slightly blurry, endowing them with the hazy quality of memories or dreams.

Shishido clearly enjoys the possibilities of light and shade in his films. Not only does he experiment with intensity of light, but he also plays with the patterns made by light when it encounters different objects.
