Born in 1966 in Hiroshima and lives in Kanazawa, Japan. Graduated from Kanazawa College of Art in 1995. With the theme of memories of his wife and sister who left the world at a young age, he draws huge patterns with salt on the floor. After the exhibition, in collaboration with the viewers, the work is destroyed and the salt returned to the sea. In addition to the 21st Century Museum of Contemporary Art, Kanazawa, his works have been presented by MoMA PS1, Hermitage Museum (St.Petersburg), Tokyo Metropolitan Museum of Contemporary Art, and others.
