I’m intrigued by the sculptural work of artist Bunpei Kado. According to his website, he also dabbles in interior design, which explains his fascination with our modern-day dwelling: fodder for his latest exhibition, “Fauna.”

Mankind’s footing, which previously was firmly rooted to the earth’s ground, has separated.  Technological advancements distance us from our age-old dwelling. On display at Galerie SOL in Ginza through the end of this week, Kado explores questions pertaining to habitat and how its definition continues to evolve.

I’m also a big fan of his 2008 series, Memories of the Wild.
