The theme of my works is “untruth”. As we know, the modern world is filled with information, and it also includes false information. They range from a simple fib to a vicious lie. Information has the power to influence the reality, and so we have to be cautious about its authenticity. I think that all expressions have a certain kind of untruth as a fiction, inside of them. False information will not be effected if it is not communicated to anyone. On the other hand, targets of communication exist everywhere. In my execution, communicating information will be accomplished when I myself take actions against the world or release my works. By using untruth as a trigger to contact with the world and people, the truth that we can’t usually easily touch can be glimpsed. And individual psychology or the structure of society that surrounds us would also dawn on us. And I also think that it can be a trigger that beholders re-realize and re-define things by stirring things up for the social values.
