Possibility of the lecture original aspect
It is a series of masks which appear for the poster visual that I appear, and play an important role in such a new work. It is ability mask maker resident in Settsu-shi, Osaka, Miichi Yasuo to have produced this mask. I spoke what kind of process a mask was produced by this lecture in by a viewpoint of Miichi.
When I produce a mask, it is said that it begins because at first I know the inside of the person. I began by studying a background and thought of the each person, and even this production was to have elaborated molding and a characteristic through sketching and the exchanges of the mock-up next.
