Japanese artist Motohiko Odani studied academic wooden sculpture at art college. He combines traditional wood carving techniques with cutting-edge hi-tech expressions such as computer processed video images to explore a wide range of artistic fields. As the process of virtual reality progresses, we are more surrounded by a feeling of lost in relation to the tangibility and existence of our everyday life.
