grade B shelf
I thought about the importance of linguistically understanding the value the thing has and the value the person finds in things. But not like simple expressions such as cool, pretty, etc. I am thinking that there are important elements other than the value that can be formulated, quantified and dateable like monetary value and function. As a result, the sense of distance to objets is shrinking and I think that it is possible to understand the other side of objects.
UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
This object was made with a glass marble called B DAMA in japan with a context of a defective item. The marble has come from the name B which is a meaning of a defective item. I attempted to change the meaning that the marbles have, especially by using B DAMA used in Japan for furniture decoration. This object was created by a defective material, so this shelf was partially treated to remove the glass marbles on the surface, to include that meaning and context in object.
OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
This object use as interior object and furniture. This object can give an impression that it is not only one of the tool and decoration of interior, but also the strength of time-consuming handcraft which is not found in mass-produced items.

I incorporate Roland Bart's semiotics and the concept of time in Heidegger's books in my work. As a result, I found value in hierarchy and stratification of the meaning of one symbol and object, and assembled the concept from there. In the concept of time, The act of laborious acts or the act of taking time mean that the producer uses the time until his death for production. In other words, production acts can be said to the gorgeous act of time using until the death of the author. So I created a delicate object by glass, but at the same time it contains a heavy context of death of the producer.
It took a lot of time, several months, to make this fine work. Also it was a painstaking work to align small round marbles.
