5/26(Sat) 10:00 - 5/27(Sun) 18:00
Tenso Shrine
[Participation fee]
Incorporating the guardian lions of Shinto shrines as a motif, this work uses fluorescent threads that respond to ultraviolet rays to create polygon data translated from three-dimensional objects. These polygon forms of Shinto guardians veer in and out of the space between two and three dimensions, digital and analog, imaginary and real, a world you can experience in the middle of Roppongi.
* Due to the characteristic of the art, we recommend seeing it after sunset.


Takayuki Mori

Born in 1983 in Okayama Prefecture. In 2006 graduated from the Sculpture Course, Department of Fine and Applied Arts, Kyoto University of Art and Design. To express visual images with an indefinite existence and no substance in three-dimensional spaces he uses light and transparent materials to create works of sculpture with an ambiguous presence that toggles back and forth between two and three dimensions.
