NANAME in Daily Press (Japan)


The exhibition “studies” is an exhibition of the process in my design work.

I use the models as tools in order to gain the perspective of a third person. 

I place a model discreetly in a certain scene and take photographs. Doing so gives me a sense of the thing already in use. The idea I created becomes separate from my own thinking, and I can enter the illusion that somebody else designed it and I’m critiquing it. As I believe that circumstance provides an occasion that allows me to make judgments in a natural state of mind, and as I think the judgments I make under that circumstance are the sternest, I will continue to adopt this method as part of the process to the greatest possible degree.
