“Nothing is made by humans completely from scratch. We are constantly searching through our limited resources to create, form and constitute what’s necessary for us to advance as a human race. And as time changes through our history, the structure of our human needs change and reshape itself constantly. The fragments of artificial landscapes continue to reshape and rearrange themselves in order to create brand-new landscapes within our limited world. The never ending process of creation and destruction is just another part of natural phenomenon that we faced from the past to present day.” Masakatsu Sashie
