About shingo yoshida
According to the fact that his artwork is site-specific, he travelled to many countries throughout the world. An essential task within his creativity is therefore to adapt to various lifestyles and social codes. What he has realized ever since while being exposed to following conditions is the simple fact that we as human beings are in a state of powerlessness and nothingness.
Our being as a single human is a humble existence. Still, while feeling meaningless there is the perception of surprise due to devastating magnificence. His primary intention is by all means to restate his memory of such a magnificent experience. Due to the fact that he become aware of the little existence he is, he can face his self. The result is similar to a comparison: As method to reconfirm his self, he try to find legends and myths, states of society that are hidden somewhere in the world and almost forgotten or lost. Finally this is the reason why I continue traveling.
Distances have shrunk tremendously with the spread of the Internet. Today this is how we share the same news, information, trade items and also nationality that all have crossed borders: digitalized to be shared closely. Ever since not only our private lives have changed, but also the human society as a whole including its philosophy, generations and fashion.
The world of sharing has made our lives convenient. However, no matter to what time we proceed: We must not forget that truth is not to be proved by knowledge that we borrow, but by knowledge we gain by walking out and prove with our proper eyes. He is convinced of the fact that even if you step out only once in your lifetime: A journey to anywhere far will absolutely enrich life. With the artwork he create due to his observations he intend to raise questions. At the same time he wish deeply that his work touched the people so that they will start going out into the world.
