ADVENTURE-LANDING is a distilled compendium on the subject of animation. The project brings together materials from experimental and non-commercial domains; it looks at the use of the medium of animation and presents new critical receptions within high and low cultural and artistic production. It traces questions of a time image, the doubling that is integral to image formation, and notions of territorial and urban constructions within the discourse of animation history.

ADVENTURE-LANDING weaves together explorations of animation that emerged at different times: research for a doctoral thesis (2000–6) and material from a residency in Tokyo in June 2009. The conversations with artists, architects and researchers Takehito Deguchi, Koji Yamamura, Masaki Fujihata, Stephen Wilson, Yoshiharu Tsukamoto, Kenta Kishi, Saki Satom, Chikara Matsumoto, Naoyuki Tsuji, Hiromitsu Murakami, Takahiro Hayakawa and Toshimaru Nakamura address specific dimensions of Japanese animation, and make the claim for a structural coherence between animation and geographical, institutional and social ideas.

In this duality of content and time, the book becomes a multilayered object. The format of the compendium – bookwork and map at once – enables a virtual journey in which the reader travels across various realms of a focused study. A contribution by Uriel Orlow accompanies ADVENTURE-LANDING.
