His voice aligns with the concept of Dada, which was born as anti-art movement descending from the industrial revolution. The collection incorporates found objects and mixed media, which look beyond traditional aesthetic standards. From the perspective of nonsense humor and playfulness, through unnecessarily labor-intensive techniques, copying, faking and (just) wearing, this collection explores the relationship between meaning, materialistic capitalism, aesthetic and accepted norms.” – Designer, Ryohei Kawanishi
