Gate Pages :: August 03: Motomichi Nakamura


Motomichi's work often explores the relationship between violence and human nature and combines digital animation with an array of visual clues derived mainly from urban culture.

Recent animation work includes: "Punto Zero," a music video created in conjunction with Otto von Schirach from Schematic; "Drops," commissioned by Galleria Civica di Arte Contemporanea in Italy; and the music video "Add Boiling Water," created for Dj Tampopo of International Deejay Gigolos Records. Additionally, "Qrime," a set of short animations for the Web, has appeared in various film festivals including the Sundance Online Festival 2001.

Under the name "VJ Moto - Japon├ęs hasta la madre," Motomichi currently presents his visuals in front of live audiences, superimposing animated characters on random images taken from street scenes in Latin America.
