The Intent of My Creation

By recreating the “world” with my fingertips, I hope to be able to truly know the workings of the world.
My creative process begins with recreating real – life scenes in miniature.

Making miniature enables me to see things I never noticed before, and to discover meaning I never knew existed, hidden in the scenery.

During the process of creation, my senses are heightened, and this state makes the miniature differ from the real-life subject.

Repetition of this process creates a sense of distance between the recreated miniature and reality that is unique only to myself.

With a measuring tape in hand, measurement of actual objects such as convenience stores, insides of a train, major roads, and newly built apartments is taken. The measured object is then shrunk proportionately to create a diorama that truly reflects the actual object and after the diorama is completed, it is photographed (on 4 x 5 inch film).

The diorama exits only temporarily and is destroyed after being photographed. The pictured image then becomes only a shadow of actual existence and begins to form an added sense of remoteness.

Miniatures can only be incomplete. Thus, the miniatures guides the viewers to look at “the real thing” and through this process, “the real thing” truly becomes real.

At the exhibition, I display large photographs of the miniature.

Displaying large photographs of the miniatures alter the sense of scale in the exhibition space. By viewing images (photographs) of non-existing things, the viewers begin to feel the true meaning of reality.
