What Hiroaki Kano has to say about his work?
“We live in a variety of environments: the city environment is filled with various artifacts, the natural environment in which plants and animals live, our body’s internal environment that sustains our lives, and the world network environment that is made possible by the Internet. These environments that surround us are full of various “things.” When we pay closer attention to these “things,” we notice that there are systems and histories created by humans. These stories and myths are essentially linking to the world structure. I am strongly attracted to this enormous amount of information. These “things” are held in reality in front of my eyes.” Kano Hiroaki
