Taifun N°19 /
Logical Rain

A Video-contribution to the exhibition by curator W. Scheppe in Dresden. Logical Rain talks about the lost Japanese culture of Katakami printing and the deep rooted connection of Japanese culture to rain as a welcome source of life, rather than the western category of bad weather.
The short Movie Taifun N°19 is about rain, but shot on a specific location on one particular day:
Due to the climate change, a growing number of Taifuns is hitting the Island. While the 19th Taifun of 2014 was crossing the Kansai area, i filmed at the Kyoto Conference Center site, where 1997 the Kyoto Climate Protocol and international treaty to fight global warming was adopted.
