The item was designed as a “protector” for the hand and forearm. The “sampling” aspect of reality is also important, the organic form of the shell, which has protected organisms for millions of years, has been “redesigned” and produced in a digital way along with artifacts (pixel texture occurring). The title shell alludes to the masterpiece that is “Ghost in the Shell”-also asking the question about the dystopian future of humanity and our planet in an era of increasing digitalization and climate disasters, where we are awakened daily by notifications of discoveries previously known only from cyberpunk cultural works. Can the technologies we see as innovative today contribute in the future to solving the problems they themselves co-create? 「SHELL」invites reflection on the boundaries between the natural and the artificial.
