Takashi Hokoi

Born in Kanagawa Prefecture in 1984. A modeling artist who visualizes invisible beings with the theme of landscape.

When he was a student, he participated in a bird-human contest in a human-powered airplane circle and flew as a pilot. He began to be interested in the wind from the experience of a huge human-powered airplane being tossed by a slight wind that he did not notice, and thereafter began to create works on the theme of the wind.

On the other hand, during the NHK era, he shot a tsunami from a helicopter during the Great East Japan Earthquake. After that, I will continue to cover Fukushima Prefecture. He has published a travel documentary about Fukushima.

As a recent attempt, he focuses on the invisible presence in landscapes, takes his work to the natural world of mountains and the sea, and develops works that record wind blowing in the field as images. In addition, he creates a work that records the traces of the wind, which is a material-temporal conversion.

He is asking questions about the absolute sense of sight of human beings and exploring the possibility of modeling that confronts nature and energy as technology evolves.
