Takeshi Shinohara

In-process back calculation of the protocol


Takeshi Shinohara is a contemporary artist who has taken a deep look at human thought and its origin and transformed it into action through his creations.

The first scroll made in ancient Greek papyrus was called protokollon, where "proto" meant "first" and "col" meant "glue".

If you think about it, this act, which can be said to be the origin of writing letters, can be said to be the first step in determining the conventional concept of the world that is familiar to us today.

In today's hectic time, I sometimes feel that my thoughts have stopped and I feel like I'm being driven by the rules of the world.

Suddenly stopping and trying to transform your thinking against the big flow must be a small but great first step to create a page of a new era from the future.
