Modern Remains Polyhedron

I coined the term “Modern Remains.” I wanted to create a work which looks like attractive remains. When creating this work, I first created an object composed of regular tetragons arranged geometrically, which give a modern and artificial image to the work. Then I degraded part of it to add a touch of “weathering” (representing a period of elapsed time). This work shows the beautiful time that has elapsed between ancient and modern times. I hope that viewers will feel it. The breaking down of a man-made object will generate openings, or suki in Japanese. Suki will create a thing of beauty.
