I anyways live until I die (2014)

Obituary for Kishimoto Tetsu from Kyoto, Japan (1952 – 2012).

The film is a research on human memory and human visual memory and perception; it is structured in seven parts: Part I: The Planets (the origin of life), Part II & III: The Fetus – Ultrasound and In The Womb (life prior birth), Part IV & V: The Swing and Worm in the Rain (childhood), Part VI: Galloping Horses (adult life), Part VII: The Whale (death).

Certain visual effects are supposed to express different sensations within human visual memory, such as an all white screen for missing memories, an all black screen for a stage of unawareness like sleep, strobe-motion (as opposed to in animation typical smooth image transition) in order to express memories of action more closely to the actual perception), repetitive images to communicate reoccurring memories, inclusive different perspective angles of the same action, expressing memories that are no longer certain, and others.

In order for some visual and sound effects to develop their full potential this work in form on a single ongoing film is supposed to be watched in a dark room on a larger projection surface like a wall or pull out screen;
the films in separate clips are supposed to be screened on various TV screens in one space in loop-form.
