    I make three-dimensional works inspired by the lines and shapes of the doodles I keep drawing day in and day out.
    By creating intuitively, without a single motif, we can create a new style of design.
    The immeasurable memories within me mingle and
    I feel that it appears in this form. It is somewhat nostalgic, but
    We cannot say for sure that it is something, but it is a new form that we know and do not know.

    Jasmine Noda
    Born in 1996 in Thailand. He produces ceramic works and installations using them. Through his ceramic works, he refers to the relationship between "craft and art" with the aim of clarifying the multifaceted form of contemporary crafts. In the "ghost" series, he uses "cracking" as a decorative technique derived from modeling, extracting only the use from the vessels to create an ambivalent expression between the two sides of the same coin, such as "the representation of use and modeling. His major solo exhibitions include "Sinking into the Lake" (KITAHAMA N gallery, Osaka, 2020), and group exhibitions he has participated in include "ART OSAKA 2019", "Artist's Fair Kyoto 2020", and "A Day to Meet Contemporary Art at hotel koe tokyo" (Shibuya, Tokyo, 2020), and "CNNECT" (Fujii Daimaru, Kyoto, 2021).

    The act of "reproduction" brings about a "gap". Even though an object is traced as it is, there is a subtle "gap" in the tracing, and even though it looks the same, it has already been transformed into something else (the change that occurs when the image is reconstructed by transforming it into light and shadow, or the physicality of the person making the reproduction, coincidence, etc.). This kind of "misalignment" 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 misunderstandings, and there is always something like 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 that contains the "gap" created by the act of "reproduction. This is one of my creative concepts.
