A few excerpts from a 10 minute, one man live performance piece.
Using projection mapping onto street furniture, a dandypunk travels through various fantastical worlds, interacting with strange characters and treacherous landscapes, in the hope of unfolding the secrets and learning the techniques from the ancient book of "The Alchemy of Light".

This work is a shocking early face mapping work. A buzz of 5 million views was born in a week.
It became the roots of the face mapping series.
This work is the theme of Japanese identity.
While feeling that Japanese are losing confidence, where is Japan 's identity?
What is the universal value that Japan can transmit to the world?
Elements of Japan's identity such as Japanese traditional beauty, future technology, Japanism, etc. were pursued and integrated by members and collaboration members of kuwahara hiroto, Paul Lacroix, and Jin Hasegawa.
Finally, when Android face transforms, grotesque dark mask appears from inside.
It seems that it is a metaphor for a strange anxiety towards the future brought about by technology that continues to evolve at phenomenal speed.

These are paper crafted models created and modelled using Maya and Pepakura. These are a serie of prototype sculptures. We're planning to creating more and larger ones in the nearby future. The bear model is projection mapped.
