Influenced by avant-garde and trials of early video art, Taki has been expressing the relationship between “seeing” and technology of today in his art pieces. When a certain technology goes to be a natural existence such as commodities for consumption, the relation of technology and human being, is led up to a phase of building dialectic of mutual hybrid contacts beyond master and slave relation. On the process of those, “seeing” goes to be separated as “too much seeing” and “too much not seeing.” If these questions on too visible or too invisible, opened in a connection of “ground and object” among sculpture, space, screen and viewer, Taki tries to converge those hybridization and overturning into his piece.
