He takes an approach to capture live-action video materials, then compose them together getting out some relationship among their 2 dimensional images one after another. It is not a presentation of a story made by listed images like montage, but an experimental way to visualize the connection among images he apprehends. In other words, using video images as variable materials.
He is also active as a VJ mixing live-action video materials, multilaterally seeking the possibility of video medium.
