With access to the Internet made the speed of retrieving information dramatically fast.
But information, dissociated from personal experience, is harder to store in memory, resulting in people who are devoid of knowledge.
And is it not the knowledge and memories gained through experiences that make our lives mentally and physically fulfilling?
The theme that runs throughout my works is that of “modern people.”
I take a pictorial approach to the changes brought about in the lives of modern people through the spread of smartphones and the Internet — and their effects on our consciousness — and express those ideas through my work.
