“POEM” Short Film by Hiroshi Takagishi and WOW

Director/designer Hiroshi Takagishi at WOW in Tokyo: “After seeing ancient Jomon pottery with my own eyes, I could imagine (from the unique protrusions and patterns) the scenery, appearance, and movement of living things, the sounds, and their textures.

“The design that contains various fragments of information felt like a poem by the Jomon people.

“While they do not depict the living beings that the Jomon people consumed to survive, the artifacts conveyed their prayer and awe for the living beings that imbued them with life and I believe it is that energy that gave birth to the grotesque yet beautiful shape of Jomon pottery.

“This work was designed and created based on this image.”
