Artist Rei Naito reminds us of the faint presence of things that are not visible unless we make the effort to see them. An artist shrouded in mystery, Naito has up to now refused to be filmed on camera. After two years of exchanges with the artist, this documentary attempts to get close to the essence of Naito’s art, which expresses the lights of existence without pointing the camera at the artist herself. The story involves the dynamism of the pulsating space of the “Matrix” at the Teshima Art Museum, water, light, and five women who are enticed by the world of Naito’s art.
