Introduction
The director of The Beauty of Chinese lnk claims the motive for making this animation is quite similar to the process of enlightenment often found in Chinese Zen philosophy, that of an extermely accidental discovery. Blotting of ink on the plate or a depiction of fish on the pond, moving around. Anyone can discover such beautifulness, yet the discovery of what may have been overlooked in our daily lives, along with the director's ability to grasp such beauty, seems to show the practice of asceticism on Oriental meditaion with the use of camera.
