Hecomi Mapping 
– Hecomi Archive –

Between 2000 and 2020, I have collected roughly 400 shapes in 45 countries. Hecomi maps are records of those cracks gathered from certain cities and places or according to a certain approach / theme. By arranging them in the manner of a field guide, the uniqueness of each shape stands out. They possess the same functions like a map and one can read them as such. In addition, there are other maps such as Luxes’ Island Hecomi Map or Hamburg Altona Hecomi Map that were created by participants of workshops I hosted.

凹みマップ– 凹みアーカイブ –

 2000年から2020年までに世界45カ国で約400個を採取してきました。「凹みマップ」は、街や場所、アプローチを設定して集めた凹みを記録したものです。図鑑のように並べることで、それぞれの形のユニークさが際立ちます。地図としての機能を兼ね備えているので、実際に凹みを辿ることもできます。
 またワークショップを開催し、参加者が集めた形をまとめたものに「麗島凹みマップ」や「ハンブルク・アルトナ凹みマップ」などがあります。
