inner motivation
When I was a high school student, to me the shape of human chromosomes looked like wriggling people. It amazed me that biological gender and personal data are recorded in these tiny, human-looking molecules, and that they are self-determining even though they have no will.
From there, my imagination led me to a film featuring an ensemble cast comprised of these microscopic chromosomes but each depicted as independent human beings. In it, I wanted my queer will to be the intervening medium.
My aim was to portray small groups of people in very short sequences, and then create a bigger story by connecting the smaller ones – I thought that structure would be the same as chromosomes. At the time of production, I had uncertainties and perplexities about my life, so in a way I wanted to create this work to confront myself and the queer identity.
