Born 1981 in Chiba Prefecture. Lives and works in Yamagata Prefecture. His practice deals with hollowed-out inner cities as well as the mines or vanished and abandoned villages of the Tohoku region of Northeast Japan, documenting acts of intervention in these environments and nature where such changes were imposed. The phenomena arising from these acts are expressed through video, photography, and performance. His recent work has explored the theme of deification, interpreting ways of coexisting with nature as living side by side with gods.
