Project Dive -Methods to trace a city
Experiment of moving image with multiple perspective Cameras.

Entrusting a camera. This work is a multi-channel video installation where I strap multi- cameras to my body (both wrists, both ankles, my forehead, and the back of my head), and simultaneously film the scenery while I am walking around. This is not filming for a subject, but rather to record the scenery while following the photographer’s body. The scenery, projected onto 6 screens, deconstructs the sense of a unified world and body, and provides a rift to the aspects of a world with myself at the center. In this exhibition, he will Conduct an experiment of the image to be creative and exercise by the move and perceptual.
3D system development and Technical cooperation with Shogo Tanaka.

GeoLog

GeoLog is a sculpture of topography that the landform where the tree grew is carved on the tree itself.
This work focuses on features of a tree not only as a material, but also as individuality of life.
Growth rings made of the weather and surroundings, and topography formed by upheaval and erosion are the consequences of respective impetus and movement, and they are integrated into one form of art.
Nested structure of the growth rings and the landform is observed in it, and at the same time, broad visions inside and outside the structure will be perceived.
