Electric Cine Club
（Yuta Niwa + Takanori Shimodera）
A projection cart inspired by a movie projector and a gun turret, Electric Cine Club can go anywhere and everywhere and transform a space it into a theater. Unbound by place, it evokes the days before there were any cinemas. Projected from it, "Something Black" is an animation reminiscent of an Edo catfish painting. What is it thinking as it wriggles about? When Electric Cine Club comes to town and shows "Something Black," ordinary life gets an extraordinary makeover.
[Materials] Wood, iron, acrylic, wheels
