X rays of character




This project is a two-dimensional work consisting of words processed to give the appearance of having been X-rayed. The project begins with the question: “ What would we see if words were X-rayed?”“ 人 (human),”“ 目(eye),”“ 男(man),” “忘(forgetting),”“ 戦(battle),”and other Chinese characters that express elements of the emotions, body and actions of human beings loom, projected in the light, and the reality and meaning of the letters emerge. ls it the true nature of humankind that is being exposed there?
