Keisuke Itoh - Feather
This is a story about a small girl doll whose goal it is to be a ballet dancer. The setting of the story is inside of a doll house which is placed in an old attic. Viewers do not just watch over the story but also pass a feather to her interactively.
The feather is a symbol which implies both ‘Courage’ as well as ‘Encouragement’. It looks white and light, and fluffy. When she confronts some difficulty, a feather appears in front of the viewer.
As she receives a feather from the viewer, she grows up to pursue her goal to be a ballet dancer.
