Koki Tanaka "Everything is Everything" 2006
This is the first video I found online by Tanaka, and the minute I saw it I was reminded of Lee Walton's "Making Changes." Tanaka, like Walton, uses common objects along with his own ingenuous actions to offer his viewers a new way of looking at life and a child-like curiosity for what will happen next in his film.
This is an interview with Tanaka explaining his art and it's mission.
Koki Tanaka "Walk Through, test no.2" 2009. This film is the most recent one I found by Tanaka, and unlike in "Everything is Everything," we actually get to see him entirely performing all his actions.
