A night-time drive through Tokyo transforms into a dizzying sensory experience

In Eye know, Hiroshi Kondo uses lights from a late-night highway drive through his home city of Tokyo as inspiration for a kaleidoscopic ballet. Set to the frenzied piano score of Ayako Taniguchi, the film quickly transforms common sights into reflected images that render the urban space magical, the familiar otherworldly.
