Bunpei Kado1978-

A characteristic of Kado's work is to begin production by creating stereotyped objects using materials at hand. If they were not stereotypical, they could not function as 'signs', but would signify something more.

Another peculiarity is his generation of new meaning by combining objects into forms like jigsaws, and creating a divergence between the original function and the new meaning. The Human Nest series, combining houses and cranes, tactfully expresses the instability of our contemporary urban residential environment. It is fascinating how Kado's work clearly looks interesting as an object as a result of a combination of familiar objects. The oscillation of meaning generated by this method has broadened in scope over the past few years.
