■ "Innocence" for the 20th anniversary of the release of the release

The stage of the movie "Innocence" is a cyber -brain, and digital communication through the network is possible, even without a computer terminal, and the mechanization of the body is progressing, and people and cyborgs and robots are advanced. The world of 2032, which coexists.

Following the ukiyo -e of the "GHOST IN THE SHELL" released in 1995 and the latest work "Ghost in the Shell Sac_2045", "Innocence" appeared as the first Ukiyo -e prints.

■ In producing Ukiyo -e trees

Ukiyo -e, a traditional craft representing Japan. However, the entire industry is now in danger, and the number of craftsmen inheriting this traditional technology that has been in the Edo period has shrunk to dozens of people in Japan.

While we are focusing on the development of young people, it is true that production, including raw materials, is reduced and the number is decreasing.

Along with the active craftsmen (painters, sculptors, sliding teachers) who are trying to convey the woodcuts of Ukiyo -e to posterity, the goodness of Ukiyo -e is good from a new angle by interacting with traditional techniques and "innocence". To let people around the world know. And we will contribute to part of the development of Japan without interrupting this world -class culture.

I want to deliver it to you. The essence of traditional Japanese crafts.

■ Points of this work

・ The reason why I chose "Android" instead of the main character "Bateau" or the representative character "Kusanagi Moto" as a picture of Ukiyo -e



The movie "Innocence" is the main story of the woman's android "Type 2052, Hadari", which has run away and caused a murder case. Through the incident, the relationship between "human", "doll", "soul" and "body" is depicted from a philosophical perspective. This Android cut, which appeared in the scene with the deadly conversation in the work, is one of the scenes that symbolize the work, so it was adopted as a motif of Innocence Ukiyo -e.






The universal philosophical at the root of the work,

In this workReproduced in detail by delicate craftsmen

Please appreciate it through Ukiyo -e.




・ Floating type frame




This work has a frame method called "floating", which creates a space in front, up, down, left and right of the work. In the above -mentioned scenes, many Androids are sealed and suspended with the preserved solution for parents. I thought that the floating frame was not only reminiscent of such a scene, but also the most effective specification in expressing a doll that had no soul and became a "sky".

■ "Lattice -Lattice-" commentary
"GHOST IN THE SHELL" and "Innocence" were my favorite movies, so I wanted to make a pure framed work. At the same time, I have made various framed works in the past, but I also wanted to make a different expression. The modeling of the shrine that has been expressed all the time is in this amount, and when I wonder what kind of shrine I want to use, the festival scene that appears in the innocence play, the floats are in the city. I'm walking. The temple modeling is very Chinese, and the roof is flashy. I wanted to use this as one motif. The roof decoration is colorful somewhere, so I thought it would be interesting if I could make the color of the acrylic into a vicinity.

Another thing that expresses in that amount is the grid pattern of the Asian pattern, but this is also a very symbolic Asian pattern in the play. There is a lattice pattern, and it is expressed as a mixture of Gothic architecture in Europe somewhere. I don't know if the stage is Hong Kong, but the scenery that mixes with the chaotic ones is very interesting, so I studded it in my forehead.

◆ Information
The country where I was born and raised, Japan.

Before looking abroad, I visit shrines and temples in various places in Japan and traditional Japanese architecture.

I go to various places again and have the question I feel.
In history, how has the shrine and temples changed with the times??How has the architectural style developed into the science and other civilizations that Japan has accepted.?How do people deal with Buddhism and Shinto, religion, and how did they use religions as a symbol of authority to control the hearts of the people??

The answers to these questions are used to rebuild the expressions using modern materials and crafts, using traditional architecture and historical events.
