Takashi Kawashima

Born in Miyagi, JAPAN, 1985. Based in Tokyo JAPAN

There are varieties of specificity about Japan. The natural disasters happening these few years are one of them. Towns were destroyed entirely by Tsunami, volcanic ashes lie thick on the ground by an eruption…what’s next? There are not many catastrophically lands in the world, and this is where I was born.

For these few years, I am interested in describing the scene of near future based on my research, from my experience, by visiting those places, and the results inspired by contemporary philosophy and literature. It is important to describe its overview not only by the simple typology collection, but by the installation with “a story”. In each project, I use mainly the images, which created by the technological progress (or de-progress) of the day by considering photography as a media art emphasizing something “UNSEEN”.
