People of different races have lived in this vast and immense universe on the small piece of
dust called Earth. Since the beginning of time, they have fought each other to expand their
territories and preserve their own kind. Humans will be continuously struggling to survive,
taking care of their families, and wishing for happiness as they have always been.
These humans, in other words, “people in this world,” are a major theme in my works.
People in urban areas today repeatedly bump into and compete against each other.
When you look at the way in which they move, you will see they behave in a regular,
repetitive manner as if they were a part of a machine. Individuals form a group, and
groups form a crowd. Seen from a distance, they look like a living organism made of one
The crowd may seem vibrant and colorful to the eye; however, on the other side of the
coin, there are small, vulnerable people drowning in anxiety and solitude and feeling swept
by the benefits of civilization.
Individuals in such a colorful crowd!
Lonely humans are no longer visible in the crowd when seen from a distance, which
suggests the word “crowd” itself embodies the loss of individuality.
My works explore how people face their lonely fate in modern times by focusing on the
relationship between individuals and the crowd. Read More
