Kazuki Yamane has been practicing calligraphy since he was a child, and in university, he majored in classical calligraphy. After graduating, he went to Australia where he came into contact with various languages and cultures.

Here he shares the beauty that these characters hold, through studying their appearances and content. And in this age where we type more than write, he offers a performance in the hopes the audience will take more interest in writing through physical experience.
