Study Statement 2.0 (continuous revision)


 A combination tone – the need of disease

“A combination tone (also called resultant or subjective tone) is a psychoacoustic phenomenon of an additional tone or tones that are artificially perceived when two real tones are sounded at the same time. Their discovery is credited to the violinist Giuseppe Tartini (although he was not the first, see Georg Andreas Sorge) and so they are also called Tartini tones.”(Wikipedia)


Diversity is not disease, and abnormality is not pathology; disease has an irreplaceable meaning for artistic creation, and art has a positive effect on disease. When we acknowledge the positive influence of disease and art on each other, does disease become a goal or a marketing tool?

– AIM 1 Study the definitions of “disease”, “pathology”, “abnormality”, and “diversity”.

     Objective Read The normal and the pathological, the gay science, etc.

– AIM 2 Theme of the long-term project: the balance between intuition and reason; “fake intuition”

– AIM 3 Explore how to build a long-term project.

     Objective make more cross-material creation.

     Objective learn 3d software.

     Objective digital programming combined with processing images.

– AIM 4 Exploration and creation of “accessible art” – how to convey the same emotion and concept through different senses. What are the more “universal” senses.

     Objective Making small projects: transformation of images and music. The connection between image and touch.


The clothes I currently collaborate as a designer are designed in the “jiraikei”(“landmine”) style. This style is closely related to the Japanese “yamikawai” (“cute but with mental/physical disease”)style. Pills, syringes, band-aids, and gauze are the main elements of this style. In this context, disease is considered to be cute, not rejected, and an aesthetic to be followed.

In Shamanic culture, the shaman gains powers to close to the gods by artificially “causing madness”. Shamanism: Archaic Techniques of Ecstasy states that shamanism is founded on an epileptic experience. The experience of madness is a primordial phenomenon, and it rooted in the human original condition. The epileptic experience is a quest and can be acquired artificially.

So is the state of illness similar to the epileptic experience? Is there a need for disease? How can disease be acquired artificially?

I like Jasper Spicero’s work and I’m trying out a new style of work that is bolder and more definitive in its control of the image. I am currently learning 3d software and hope to skill up to create my ideal image.


Keep doing side projects that can be easily realized as much as possible to keep my passion.

-Theory is added at the bottom of bibliography

-Research added at the bottom of the bibliography

-Experimenting Keep working on images. Don’t care about the completeness of the side project.
