My works are centered on the concept of the "materialization of imagination through plastic models." From computers to other peripheral equipment and figurines, my creations could be called the embodiment of a daydream that we have all once had.

    About the Materialization of Imagination through Plastic Models

    Why did you start to creating these works?

    I thought that plastic models could be more than just toys; they can be a material through which people can express themselves. So I displayed my work made with plastic models at Tama Art University. That was the beginning.

    Furthermore, I thought plastic models were’t just something to be assembled according to a set of instructions. I saw that they had huge potential to become a work of art through intentional modifications, like remodeling and painting.

    Therefore, the theme of my work became "materialization of imagination through by plastic models." Some examples are "Marble Phantasm of Arcueid" and "Banishment This World."

    In particular, what I do is take parts of existing plastic models and modify PC peripherals or movable figures. The point is to look for associated concepts based on the shape or usage of an object to be modified. If a computer mouse looks like a tank, I'll use a tank plastic model to modify it into one.
