Description/

Human activities have had geological effects on Earth and are now known as Anthropocene. Mining has developed worldwide without regard to natural cycles, and manufacturing processes have become very complex. As a result, understanding an overall picture of resource extraction, manufacturing, and disposal is extremely difficult, and people have yet to find a way out of the current situation. Haze is a series of object and patition that attempts to reframe the relationship between humans and materials, which has become inadequate and too complex. Copper wire (discarded wire), a symbol of modern civilization, was collected in Tokyo and used in this artwork. This project returns to the roots of our relationship with materials – “using indigenous materials and shaping them by hand” – and imagines Tokyo as a mineral deposit where copper can be made with less energy to explore new values for copper wire beyond its original functions and utilities.
