Wabi-Sabi Flower Arrangement, 2018

250 x 400 x 300 mm |  24K-Gold Rose, PLA, Urethane Paints

 

CONTEXT

The sensibility of Japanese people is not derived from innovation and reinvention, but derived from respect and preservation of subconscious awareness of culture. 
Japanese people have fermented cultural thread blended by cultural influence from the West and other countries, as Japanese have carried on its unique culture from generation to generation.  Japanese traditional beauty called “Wabi-Sabi” lies in the core of this cultural fermentation.  This sophisticated virtue was taught by a famous tea master Sen No Rikiyu.  When the minimum quantity of “beauty” is installed in the simplest form of space without any waste, the consciousness of yin and yang in space start to unify and create inflection.  In the end, there is only the “essential beauty of sophistication” left out in the simplest form of the space.
Sophistication is a beauty which stands in stark contrast to innovation and reinvention.
Fate can be irrational but my tragic accident taught me a form of perception to aim for this sophisticated beauty by accepting the reality.  New seeds sprouted from my broken cervical spinal cord and my ruined fate is carrying on to next it’s stage by blooming flowers to reach for sophistication.

Astronaut Helmet, LED Panel, Cup Noodle, Book, Steel Can, Cell Phone, Brushes


 

CONTEXT

My intellectual curiosity never ends.  We are living in a world where space travel is just a few steps away from becoming realistic.  For me, I don’t want to welcome aliens on the earth, instead I would rather be welcomed by aliens in the universe.  If I met aliens in the universe, I would want to tell them about the great things from our planet. But what should I introduce them to? I realized that there are so many great and rubbish things on this earth, which I can’t even keep count of.  Humans have a high curiosity in sex, there are so many great athletes and artists, Cup Noodle is the greatest invention of humans, and there is a magical herb called “weed”.  So I came up with this artwork to do a presentation for the aliens.

2 of 27 inches wide monitors x H 1800 mm
MP4 Video, 2 monitors, PLA object sculptures, audio copper wires, head sets, Steel bar, rotational steel joints, MRI photographs in Digital data

 

CONTEXT

If one thing behaves, another side behaves oppositely.  Those two things synchronize without having any agents.  A distance of the connected link between two things can be as close as zero or can be as far as the distance of a galaxy.   Perspective of the world can be like a cosmic order since one thing accepts the outcome by synchronizing with another outcome.  Quantum appears in front of you once you observe it.  Does the consciousness of what you would like to see affect the outcome of it’s observation?  Is it meaningless to wish for something you desire to see and hoping that it comes out in front of you after you open your eyes?  I think there are many ways of fate existing in the world and I think how you open your eyes with a certain consciousness would affect the outcome of what comes out in front of you.  I have an option of choosing my life.  There are two sides to things coming out in front of you when you open your eyes so enjoy whichever side you like.


Struggle in Digital

960 x 1620 x 50 mm
Micro SD, Canvas, Digital Data

 

CONTEXT

I’ve been trying to achieve an expression of a certain dignity and pressure in my digital art creation by using various methods such as putting more than 800 layers in Photoshop.
By challenging various methods, I found out that multiple layers can fit inside this tiny digital card instantaneously.  I can feel technology has been advancing but at the same time, speed and ease of copying and pasting digital data gave me a sense of emptiness.  I’ve installed heavy designs of my digital art piece into each SD card but what do I find beyond there?


The Flower Has Bloomed cuz The Neck Was Broken

1640 x 1960 x 500 mm
Acrylic on wood canvas

 

CONTEXT

It’s been one hell of a ride to come this far.  It wasn’t easy to accept the outcome of the accident which destroyed my neck in half and all other surrounding things of my life.  I have been trying hard to reconstruct and strengthen my shattered mentality and life in a different method.  If I could walk, I could have held a girl’s hand to go out for a date, however I can’t anymore. Now I have a different way of life and a different road to take. But, I can say out loud that the flower has bloomed because I broke my neck.  I made my portrait by using multimedia on a 2-meter wide wooden canvas.  And then painting on the canvas while holding a paint brush attached to a 1.6-meter long fishing rod in my mouth.

It took me four days to complete.  In order to paint on each corner of the canvas, I had to rotate the canvas, and sometimes turn it upside down, to batter my brush against the canvas.   

Making the texture by using a stamp which was made of a special material, painting of the symbol mark “Kinky Line” by utilizing a masking technique, and layers of the printed word “medium” gave multi-stratification to the artwork.


The PriMeR HeATs

PrIMER HeATS, 2018
DATA
PrIMER HeATS, 2018
970 x 1620 x 100 mm
PLA, Urethane Paint, Fake Leather, Zipper, Wood Canvas

CONTEXT

You will find out this piece inside if you open the zipper attached on back of my neck.  My doctor clamped my broken backbone with bolts but my torn spinal cord is toast.  However, my cervical spine is always burning hot in a candy red color.  The defect in my body gives me a burning desire. The current medical care is just amazing.  I can move my neck without any problems, and more importantly, I am still alive.  Clamped bolts gave me a certain limit in a range of neck motion but I don’t give a damn.  I’m going to move my eyeballs more, not move my neck more.


Vision Play with Male Mouse

VISION PLAY WITH MALE MOUSE, 2018
DATA
Vision Play with Male Mouse, 2018
727 x 910 x 350 mm
PLA, Urethane Paint, Wood Canvas, Audio Jack Cable

CONTEXT

This is a fun piece of visual perception.  A mouse can be harmful but can be also a hero or an idol figure.  People tend not to construe things thoroughly and sometimes misinterpret the definition of coolness, beauty, or fear.  Plus they break down the component elements and extract only partial elements of the meaning.  We have a longing for one mouse but we are also blindfolded without understanding why we have a longing for it.


Vitruvian Man as His Skull Is

420 x 594 x 150 mm
Acrylic Boards, Brush, Watch, Paper, Money Bills, Coffee Beans, Tabacco, Acrylic Paints

 

CONTEXT

This is a citation of Leonardo Da Vinci’s Vitruvian Man.  When I’ve lost external looks and physical proportion and started to accept the reality, I decided to reconfigure my mental proportion and the structure of my consciousness and personal experience.  I’ve been trying to accept / overcome / revitalize / develop / transcend my complexes by travelling to many places, having many opportunities, and meeting many people.
Multi-layered conception and ill-ordered elements still dominate in my mind but making things in order is not only virtue I should seek for.  A brain cannot function properly if your skull is not aligned according to the gravity but all elements can just loom over beside it.


The Neuron Networks

2170 x 5420 x 1800 mm | 85.5 x 213.4 x 70.9 in
Bean sprouts,Acrylic case,Polyethylene Board

 


 

CONTEXT

Don’t get me wrong, all I wish for isn’t t the recovery of my body.  As a matter of fact, a mechanism of nerve reconstruction is very philosophical.  It’s like a relationship of humans.  Nerve systems amend the neuron network whenever it is broken or cut off.  It tells us that it is possible to recover what has been broken.  You must not give up even though your main line is cut off.  You can always expect revitalization from a simple sprout and lateral bud.

DATA

400 x 1600 x 400 mm
PLA, Urethane Paint, Steel Bars, Screw Rods, Audio Copper Wire

 

CONTEXT

I know what it’s like to be at rock bottom.  My mentality was in the pits, my life was in total despair, and thought my life would end.  However, a bottom has a physical limit of how far you can fall.  I grabbed a creature living at the rock bottom of the ocean and started my ascension.  Letting this creature dance all it likes on top of my skull.  This octopus sucked down on my brain as it adhered to my skull.  The external inspiration given by the octopus formed a sense of myself as well as giving a freedom to the octopus to form its hairstyle.  My neck and spine were broken but this creature from the bottom of the ocean brought me a whole new style to expose the fiber of my being.  This piece represents a perfect balance of two living things coming from the fallen place.
