Beyond Limits

BY SHIGETOSHI FURUTANI
@ VOL 161 ON DEC 12, 2018

Japanese artist Shigetoshi Furutani's practice engages with the formation of a language of visuals, exploring methods for visualizing social and personal phenomena, which do not have a conventionally recognized form. His work attempts to develop responses to limitations of language and expand the expression of two-dimensional form in an age of social media and engages with the limits of chaos and order, generativeness and restriction.
