Through the Windows
Throughout this animated short, windows morph into different shapes and open up to new scenes, creating a sense of constant metamorphosis through motion.
Based on one of Sato's favorite children's books, this short tells the story of a boy who is frightened when told that, based on an old superstition, he will turn into a fox, and how his mother empathetically eases those fears.
