As the viewer peers at this work through a microscope, the dedicated software takes the process of generating space as a model and visualizes it on a liquid crystal display the size of a fingernail. Countless objects keep emerging and disappearing to create …dots, lines, planes, solids, and supersolids… .

Our perceptual system, which can recognize time and space easily as continued experiences, has been improved to higher resolution to enable much smoother traceability by developing the formative art concept originated from the "Mimesis".
However, the discrete reality would be required for bio-tech and nano-tech, handling extremely scaled time and space differed from the daily life or human body, and the exploding and high dimensional information network system, which has completed the originally settled objectives.
I go forward to the initial state of formative art concept and creating system prior to the human body to explore the artistic break through against the limitation of the finite sensory organ.
There, I focus on the discreteness of a model (eg. cellular automaton) that produces computer-generated patterns or discontinuity that appears by losing the balance of perception (eg. we can see a blind spot in a simple experiment).

This project is to explore the possibility of discreteness expression.

空間発生のプロセスをモデルとした独自のソフトウェアを, わずか爪ほどの大きさの液晶ディスプレイに可視化して, 顕微鏡で覗くという作品. 発生と消滅を繰り返す, 無数の次元オブジェクトたちは, ...点, 線, 面, 立体, 超立体...と, 造形を始める.

我々は, 知覚の都合上, 時間や空間を連続的に経験していると捉えやすく, そこからMimesis(模倣) に始まる造形概念が発展し, 表現は、より滑らかに身体でなぞれるようにと, 高解像度化の一途を辿ってきた.
しかし, 時間も空間も, 身体とは極端に異なるスケールを扱うバイオ・ナノテクノロジーや, 想定された役割を終え, 膨大化し高次元化する情報ネットワークシステムにおいて, 必要なのは離散的なリアリティである.
私は有限な感覚器官という制限に対し, 芸術としての突破口を求めて, 造形の初期状態やシステムなど, 身体以前へ向かう.
そのために, コンピュータでパターンを生むモデル(Cellular automatonなど)の離散性や, 知覚の バランスを崩すことで現れる非連続性(例えば、簡単な実験で盲点を見れる)に着目している.
