All works created by Tetsuji Yamashita looks like its been created by computer graphics or paintings but its created by layering small pieces of papers.
In the middle of the deep night.
Again today there is a poem that is echoing clearly and quietly.
White petals create a melody of compassion.
Thoughts that want to make quiet flowers swing.
A small wish that is made on shooting stars.
Birds carry a hot and pure pulse.
Petals swing, hair sways, Pearls run down Close your eyes, and open your mind Forget ... forget...
