The Japanese term “mono” means “substance”. How can we ensure that materials convey their natural richness and simultaneously reveal their network of relationships with all other coexisting substances, while at the same time involving as little artificial manipulation as possible? This on-going composition exercise explores the simplest structures in which multiple landscapes and thoughts can be expressed. By limiting the use of materials to wood, metal and stone, focusing on their various properties and carefully composing them through refined juxtapositions, the results explore the limitations and invisible forces of these materials.
