    The act of "reproduction" brings about "displacement. Even though an object is traced as it is, a subtle "shift" occurs, and even though it looks the same, it has already been transformed into something else (changes that occur when the illustration is reconstructed by transforming it into light and shadow, or the physicality of the person making the reproduction, coincidence, etc.). Such "displacement" also occurs when we communicate with others. Although we simply want to convey our thoughts to the other person in words, it is rare that our thoughts are conveyed in a straightforward manner. Understanding is always the sum of misunderstanding, and there is always a vague "membrane" that exists. I try to visualize such a "membrane," that is, the impossibility and incompleteness of communication, by borrowing it temporarily into a work of art that contains the "gap" created by the act of "reproduction. This is one of my creative concepts.
