The zen master.
The Japanese master "shironekoshiro" has been relentlessly prolific, directing over 700 films, almost all of them starring his muse Shironeko. Shironeko's radiant and enlightened presence fills the screen in each one of these humble and quiet films. In these frames, Shironeko's head is piled with cat food canisters, eventually numbering five. Whether these five cans represent the five senses, the five wounds of Jesus Christ, or the Discordian "Law of Fives" is something that critics have been debating ever since this particular video emerged in early 2011. But what is clear is that Shironeko is bearing the weight of these five objects with grace and fortitude, and that he would take the weight of the world on his shoulders as long as he was allowed to continue to relax.
