It’s closed ✨ First time at a festival! Thank you to everyone who came to see us.
Finally 1,000 days until the Expo starts! We performed as a live painting artist at the TEAMEXPOFES, which could be called the opening of the Expo.
I was honored to be invited to perform along with a number of eminent artists.
The performance on the spot was like a game of Shogi. We received some comments from the audience.
Many people were involved from the preparation stage, and it was an opportunity to explore the connection between technology and art. I was able to see a world at #TEAMEXPOFES that I could never have reached on my own, and that we could only have seen together. Kenji Horie Thank you for supporting us with printing technology. And thank you for all the music provided by Jinsei Kimura and Naoyuki Chikatani ^^.
Title::Melt together time

The many people involved in the Osaka Expo 2025, and the making of the Expo. The souls of the people involved in the Expo are still glowing, even though they are melting and mingling and one individual is disappearing. It seems to have disappeared, but it hasn’t. It seems to exist, but it doesn’t. But just as a work of art is not complete without a single color, time would not have begun without any one person. By making this time into a work of art, I expressed the opening of the Expo. The blending of colors represents the participation of all kinds of people over the three years leading up to the start of the Expo, the amplification of their feelings, and the blending of even more blending and energy into the mix. In the workshop, many people enjoyed the production using DTF technology.
I have yet to experience an Expo. Expo used to be a celebration of art and technology. I wonder how I can be involved until 2025, and how I can express the future as an artist.
The world will be more crowded with new technology and more sensory experiences than at Expo ’70. You can always wear a VR headset and meet the penguins in Antarctica (National Geographic has great content!). (National Geographic has great content!).
But the reality is still there, and people are able to witness the raw worries and struggles that take place on the spot and are ultimately sublimated into art.
I think it would be interesting if that becomes real for me as a viewer. What do I want to use time as my “life”? What is my form of “happiness”? Even if it changes tomorrow at this moment.
For us, the time we spend facing the canvas and worrying about creating a work of art may be a beautiful work of art in itself.
We would like to thank all of the companies that sponsored this event. We are also thrilled that Mr. Imamura has given us this opportunity, and we anticipate that this will be a great opportunity for us.
And team! This time we got to talk about a lot of different topics over and over again. I know everyone’s thoughts and feelings, and therefore I’m happily aiming high to get to a position where I can go with everyone. I think how precious the days are when we can aim for that.
A place where we can all go together is more. Interesting and beautiful. And yet we will make the scenery breathtaking.
Thank you all so much for your support.
