“Over the years, I have created artwork in various media, including paintings, sculptures, graphic design, video installations, VJ performances, and projection mapping. In this lecture, I will discuss my desire to establish emotional connections with people, particularly through the feelings of fear and curiosity. I will delve into the significance of passion and personal feelings in the creation of impactful artwork and my ongoing exploration of new media as a means to expand artistic boundaries.” Motomichi, 2023
