There is a disaster in 10years time. We lose all information we have,
but people are still desperate to have information. They make clothes
you can infer the personal details from. There are marks on the
clothes. There is also personal information about the people; what
they do and what they like. I would like to convey that a high
percentage of the information we use nowadays is not really relevant
for our lives. We tend to have too much information, however we do
not have the ability to deal with it as we do not know how to be
selective. The broken pieces of ceramic on the floor that you see in
the video are pieces of information from the past. We do not know how
to reassemble them. These have been destroyed by the disaster.
*There is a one line scratch on the surface. see the additional photo.

Based in: London
Tou Toa is a young emerging artist, who currently works between Japan and UK. His art is centered on the creative interest for inner beauty and love in their forms and characterized by the combination of medium with social and environmental themes.
A timeless and ageless reality
Inspired by people, emotions, dreams, spirit and creativity, Tou Toa is looking for all things soulful to guide his artistic creation. After graduating from the Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design, his career started gravitating around the creation of works with a strong realistic expression. Finding the truth and representing the world, the real and unreal, the physical and non-physical is, therefore, at the base of his artistic research. A timeless reality that the viewer is able to empathize with, through the involvement of our body, mind and spirit.
Going beyond the surface
Tou Toa does not believe in categories, which is why his works are always going beyond the mere dimensional space, exploring and creating a world people normally do not witness. Through different media, such as film, performance, music and fabric he interprets the philosophical concept he creates, by bringing the viewer outside of the traditional framework.
In his career, Tou Toa has exhibited in several galleries and art fairs in UK and Japan. One of the most important experiences for the artist is the Asia Design Prize, for which he created a video art conveying the idea of human body, a code representing the human’s inner beauty.
