"Combining the comical with the absurd, I created six funny faces, which were manipulated by System G (Real Time Three Dimensional Texture Mapping developed by Sony), to animate the images of Japanese vowels in Japanese and Roman alphabet. The concept is developed from Jacques Derrida's 'Differance' in which the difference of 'image', 'letter' and 'voice' works in space and movement. Thus six images of "AIUEONN" differ and delay with the letters and the voices, creating an example of multiculturalism." Takahiko Iimura.
"Iimura deconstructs our coherence as he shifts between the English Roman alphabet and Japanese characters, interjects spoken Japanese, and manipulates the computer images of his features. The images often take on geometrical shapes, others recall the classical images from Japanese woodcuts of Samurai warrior grimace." Robert West.
"A very simple but also striking statement about the arbitrariness of semiotic relations." Fred Andersson.

Popmatters web:
"AIUEONN Six Features" (1993, 7 minutes) for some reason comes next, although it’s way out of order in the artist’s output and demonstrates the fact that his video work examines linguistic/semantic ideas. This video is shot with computer-generated effects; according to an informative page on many of this artist’s films at the Canyon Cinema website, he employed Sony’s “System G” Real-Time 3-D Texture Mapping.
It takes the form of an instructional video on how to pronounce vowels. We see the symbol (in Japanese or English) and then the face of a man pronouncing it, or at least we initially assume that’s the idea. Actually, the face is distorted humorously, as though in a funhouse mirror. There are six of these faces. Even stranger, as the cycle of faces and images and sounds (oooh’s and aaah’s and eee’s) repeat over and over, we realize they no longer match.
The assumptions of editing, as demonstrated by Lev Kuleshov, are undermined. We aren’t allowed to interpret each image as having any meaning in terms of the last one, and the disjunctive soundtrack is also betraying us. Iimura turned this video into an interactive CD-ROM and it has also been presented as a multi-monitor installation.
