Motomichi Nakamura

Through metaphor and experimental narrative, Motomichi Nakamura's episodic flash animation Bcc explores the possibilities and also the dangers inherent in wireless communication. In one animation, hands touching on a train symbolizes the connections people are able to make online—connections they might otherwise not have found offline. In the other three animations, Nakamura questions how the web services that provide networked communication —be they email, music downloading, or social networking (see glossary)—can infringe on one’s privacy.
