In the hopes of creating works that weren’t too sappy in tone and also contained a subtly suave look,
I used an original paper called the “Collage-Style Dry Flower March Paper”.
I tore bits of the paper and stuck them onto the head and clothing of the figure.
The finished product also has a pronounced antique feel.
I also wanted to create a piece that exhibited a more modern style contrary to the antique feel of Hitsuji,
so I dressed it in a full-body suit with a design that resembles an electronic circuit.
The design of the finished work looks like it would be a better fit in a setting like outer space rather than on Earth.
