“Individual Series” are still lifes photographed and magnified with industrial cameras and industrial high-resolution lens, which enable recognition of beings that are normally invisible to the eye in the special state. Just like how humans’ lives that seem perfect from outside contain numerous mistakes, failures, scars, and agony inside, the 1.6 ~ 3 mm sized microchips revealed surfaces that represent many aspects of life. “Society Series” in the series “Invisible Beings” is a work that arrays 10,000 pieces of microchip, each of which was photographed. 10,000 pieces represent the society.
