The first art installation is entitled “Matchstick Drawing” (2009) and the second one is “CNJPUS Text” (2011)—both were crafted by Ryo Shimizu.
Notes by the artist (from bio):
I have particular interest in the customs and practices of Japanese people, the relationship between history and modern society, and between the self and others. The medium of expression of those relationships branches widely across images, photographs, sculptures, and installations.
