Known for his dream-like, intoxicating universe, artist Shiro Takatani (1963 – ) passionately explores the origins of matter, from infinitesimal plankton to our immense star system. In this magnificent, poetic documentary, Takatani teams up with his closest collaborators, including composer Ryuichi Sakamoto, to celebrate his relationship with art and his eclectic oeuvre, ranging from dance and theatre to installations. He expresses himself simply and powerfully on his two great themes: nature and technology.
