Mirai Mizue was born in 1981 in Tokyo and studied animation at Tama Arts University. He is representative of a budding generation of independent Japanese animators who are taking the artform into new territories of abstraction and eccentricity. With an unabating affection for cells and their strange microscopic behaviors, Mizue uses their mutative powers in every frame as they flow in and out of eachother in rhythmical patterns, eventually overtaking the screen in a strange and hypnotic cellular ballet.
