"THE LIFE OF THE HUNTER" shows the artist's life both in a mountain and a city in an interwoven manner. Visual images contain activities such as the artist washing animal's fur and cooking its meat. Although these seem to be primitive actions in their own, the artist is actually going through these processes in a cold modern building in Tokyo; that makes the action give strange appearance for viewers.
In addition, the hunting scenes showed on the other screen will gradually reveal an extraordinary characteristic of the life.
