Dream Eater
2019

Dream–reality confusion (DRC) is a difficulty or an impossibility to determine whether an event or an experience took place during wakefulness or if it was the content of a dream. […] Individuals prone to DRC—in comparison with those who rarely or do not at all experience DRC—more often experience various sleep-related phenomena, and they also have higher neuroticism, thinner boundaries, higher dream recall frequency, and more involved attitudes toward dreams.” (Source: The Phenomenology of Dream-Reality Confusion: A Quantitative Study.)

TL;DR: I designed this while I was depressed and playing a lot of Kingdom Hearts.

Dream Eater was a part of JUMBO MUMBO, a group art show at the Co-Prosperity Sphere that aimed to find things that are bigger than they should be. 


Keep Your Prayers
2018
Keep Your Prayers is a funeral for the timeworn and commonplace “thoughts and prayers” response to moments of crisis. The typeface, Monarch, potrays an elegance reminiscent of detailed tombstone engravings and political monuments, yet the contemporary stylized details of the type invoke an unnerving feeling about the future. Free ‘In Memoriam’ cards were given away to serve as a reminder to ask where these problems come from and why they exist.

Keep Your Prayers was included in Typeforce 9, an exhibition dedicated to typography and language.


Famicase
2016-19
My Famicase Exhibition is an annual speculative game design invitational that takes place at METEOR in Tokyo, Japan. Artists and designers are asked to come up with an idea for an old Famicom game and design the cartridge for it.

Final Dream (2018)
Help each other escape the nightmare.

Empty Heaven (2017)
A fulfilled past yields no future. Now complete, but empty; How do you begin again?

Vivid Planet (2016)
See sound waves and protect the Earth from supersonic enemies!
