"The people that I love the most are the hatarakimono..because they are the people who provide for this amazing Japan."
In HATARAKIMONO PROJECT from PechaKucha Night Tokyo Vol. 153, KNARF showcases his tape-o-graphic portrait documentary about the busy bees of Japan. Manually processing his work with packing tape (+ anything from hardware or office supply stores), KNARF applies the principles of “BRICOLAGE” to photography, a contemporary Art movement born in NYC in the early 2000’s. His works adopt a “READY MADE”, “ARTE POVERA”, “D.I.Y.” aesthetic that straddles between a recent analogue past and an extreme technological present.
