BUSHIDOarcade

Abstract:
On the tracks of a stray dog, a leaderanimal that could make us think about a Hacker/Ronin, “BUSHIDOarcade” follows the “samurai’s way”, opening the door to seductive levels of understanding; subjective identity and collective history peruse themselves in a whirling world which is separated between new and ancient, between the sense of particularization and universalism, natural and artifi cial.
