In the artificial environment of the paddy field, water—an element of nature—follows the rules of the artificial. As a result, nature is made abstract, giving rise to a new form of beauty distinct from the natural state. I have expressed “stream” as a symbiotic cooperation between humans and nature. For the twelfth film in the series “The Stream”, I did not limit the stream to liquids, but extended it to include the air.
