Background:

“I don’t want to confine myself to traditional art channels, but rather seek to expose my work to a broader audience. To do so, I initially launched a collaboration with two universities: the University of Tokyo (Kashiwa Venture Plaza) and Kyoto University.

They enabled me to display my work in well-frequented public spaces, thereby allowing me to engage with the community.

Adopting this approach, I subsequently took my work to two important venues in the Otemachi financial district of Tokyo – the Sankei building and the iconic Otemachi Café.

Over a period of three years, I presented a series of works – “Konpeito”, “Mikan”, and “New York” under the sponsorship of the Mitsubishi Estate, and in collaboration with the NPO Daimaruyu Area Management Association and the Ministry of Education, Sports, Science, and Technology (MEXT).

Then in 2006, I presented my most important work to date – “Planets” which was sponsored by JAXA – the Japanese National Aerospace Exploration Agency

I firmly believe that art is a means to engage with society and is to be enjoyed by many.”
