Crow People I: Crow People is a digital art project that portrays a series of characters tangled in electric wires. Depicting the japanese ‘salarymen’ as architype workers and using the electric poles that symbolize a system that
unfolds its tentacles throughout the nation, a metaphor of an alienated society is created. The characters are entangled, writhed, suffocated, exhausted, and resigned; with almost inexpressive faces, with vertigo and fear of breaking free of a web which they know that if it gives way, it will let them fall into the void. From this scenery, the project invites reflection on the true meanings of concepts such as freedom, will, control, self- realization, and alienation, expropriates them of their commonly accepted definitions, and acts a blank sheet to be redefined by spectators.
