Nawa made this movie by taking the essence from the original drawings created for his solo exhibition entitled “Kohei Nawa – SYNTHESIS” at The Modern Art Museum of Tokyo in 2011. Using "droplets" of paint that are placed randomly in a grid which represent the behavior of a "cell" that repeat its creation and destruction. This became the first collaboration between Nawa and Sakamoto as Sakamoto composed the music for the movie.
