In Spots Spots, a 2011 animation by Yuanyuan Hu at the Tokyo University of the Arts, a boy notices some chickens in the woods. He examines them closely as he sketches them.

His imagination wanders as he thinks about the spots on the birds’ wings. He finds exhilaration in the pattern. He is mesmerized.
