This graduation project was made while at the Kyoto University of Art and Design. It brings together a lot of the research I had done over the three years I spent in Kyoto, using techniques such as drawing, cg, photography, painting, video, and puppets. “Sayonara” is based abstractly on my own experiences living in Japan, the concepts relate in many ways to these experiences, my friends, foods, things I saw, and things I felt over this time; in particular the idea of saying goodbye to close friends.
