An edition of this work has been acquired by the Hammer Museum Contemporary Collection and the Julia Stoschek Collection.

Murata’s 6 videos are 3D animated vignettes of an old man in a white suit aggressively “making it rain”, A silently cynical Popeye and a witch character–a hybrid of a Kabuki theatre villain and a generic Disney witch–gesturing its fingers as if scheming and cupping its ear listening suspiciously. Each are short and a gestural vignette of various combined TV, film and fairy tale archetypes. The sound is by Robert Beatty.
