Fukumi Nakazawa’s work explores a sense of crisis over the dehumanization caused by the development of technology. Informed by her research of dance, anatomy, tools, and ergonomics, the artist’s brush and ink drawings are layered in a stop-motion manner to depict human figures transforming into artificial and otherworldly beings. Each metamorphosis, documented on stacks of illustrated Japanese paper, is eventually pasted together to form a rectangular object, a sculpture forever sealed.
