The face is an information collecting organ and a means of communication. The eyes, mouth, nose and ears each have a function and are elements that can be recognized by humans. No matter what color or shape you play on paper, if you draw a diagram that illustrates this function later, you will recognize it as a face. In front of the magic of the face figure, meaningless colors and shapes drawn in play are subordinate to the facial expressions. But sometimes they have the power to amplify the mood and discomfort of the person.
Speaking in three dimensions, if you put out five protrusions from a clay mass, you will be like a person. If two of them are balanced, they will be self-supporting, but unsupported clay will be difficult to stand up, so a unique yuru can be embodied.
They can be disturbing obstacles for the figure.
Human figures involve emotions and sensations with powerful gravitational effects and involve various obstacles, and show moments like miracles. I want to try to taste and recreate the miraculous moment of the shape's gravitation and obstacles.
