Ryota Akiyama

Statement

Based in Tokyo, my production is attributed to the research on the nature of materials and their historical context. Free from the restraint of the production domain, values keep evolving being filtered by contemporary factors. Under this condition, the object is born with the natural influence of its surrounding people and environment. The process, the generation of new connections and functions, itself becomes an artwork.
