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.

ANGLE is an audiovisual project that applies videomapping techniques to their live sets. All their songs, synchronised to the video images, are composed and produced by ANGLE. The Techno and Electronic grooves, are made with modular synthesizers systems, thank to a collaboration with TipTop Audio, in Los Angeles. These grooves' broken rhythm patterns lend themselves well to visual representation: this juxtaposition of sounds and images all blend to create an original and engrossing experience.
ANGLE’s first step was TETRA 01, with a 3D mapping on a self-supporting, isostatic, modular structure that is made up of triangles with junctions at their vertices.
TETRA 02 is the title of ANGLE’s new live set: the structure has been equipped with LED lights, animated live through Arduino & Mad Light.
