Introduction

« What I want to do is to make visible existence, visible connections et visible relations appear more clearly.
And to cause non-visible existence, non-visible connections and non-visible relations to appear.
And to cause visible existence, visible connections, and visible relations not to appear.
What shall I now do with the world (cosmos) which denies man understanding and where these three relations comprise on antinomies ?
How and what shall I discover in the world ?
Shall I find a new meaning in the world ?
How to shape relations between people ?
These are questions which deeply concern me. »
Keiji Uematsu.

« My desire is to create a work in which a lack of a single element will cause the entire structure, the invisible existence of things and their relationships, to collapse like a cosmos. »
Keiji Uematsu.
