CURIOSITY X WOW 「JUST A MOMENT」
A work that presents a cut off the moment of an imaginary person welcoming guests, while spreading a silver cloth on the table. The analog shape is created by a digital process using 3D simulation and a 3D printer. The creation blurs the borderline between reflected canvas itself and its environment, between digital and analog and between real and virtual.
