Time Out says

At the heart of Blandy's immersive exhibition is the story of William Adams (known in Japanese as Anjin Miura), the first Englishman to set foot in the country, in 1600. In three large-scale animated cartoons. Adams’s journey to the Far East flows into science fiction, while Blandy’s cartoon alter ego, dressed as a space-age Knight of St George, roams a series of alluring Oriental landscapes. Visitors will embark on their own quest, journeying through rooms containing sculptural installations that resemble the command centre of a space station, a traditional Zen garden and a Japanese tea pavilion.
