Description:


    Soon after 25 percent of Nagoya was destroyed by fire bombing in World War II, the city launched a reconstructionproject. It is now an international manufacturing hub with a population of about 2,200,000. According to an analysis of land prices issued by the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport in 2005, commercial land in Nagoya is the third most expensive in Japan. The economy is expanding quickly, due to the Central Japan International Airport,the success of the World Exposition Aichi, etc.

    This piece is a 100-second computer animation that describes the vitality of manufacturing in Nagoya.I used procedural animation to abstract a peculiar production-line behavior.
