Born in Kobe in 1981. Regarding his work creation as one method to trace society, he conducts presentations that focus on visuals, three-dimensional objects, and installations. By accumulating the pieces of information that don’t remain in the memories scattered about everyday life, he sheds light on internalized norms and visions of society that have not been seen.
