Shinnosuke Miyake

­Some people say, “That must be a sphere, I saw a shadow and that was a circle.” Other people say, “No, I saw a shadow too but it was rectangular. It must be a box.” They believe what they saw, and believe other people were wrong. However, both people were correct, because it was a cylinder.

The main theme of my work is “difference of perspective”.  Even though essence is only one, it will be varied shapes depending on how you see or the place where are you standing. There exist shadow and essence in many kinds of things: religion, politics, neighbor, or yourself. People struggle to know "how to see" and "the correct place" to see that.
