Yuka Takeda

MA work

I am interested in exploring feelings of the subconscious mind that can be difficult to describe in words.

My approach to film is characterised by loose narrative. The balance between planning and play is important for my work. Thus, I like to keep a space to add spontaneous elements.

I am also interested in expanding the format of animation and exploring alternative methods of storytelling, for instance in the form of installation.

It gives me a lot of energy and satisfaction to work with physical material. I would like to continue working with a variety of media and processes.
