NAKAJIMA Shinta

Research Associate

Shinta Nakajima produces ornaments and vessels using hammering and chasing techniques, and his works are inspired from plants, with particular focus on forms of seeds and fruits.
Hammering is a very simple and somewhat meditative repetition of the act of beating the metal sheet to create undulation, convex and concave.
Nakajima intends to produce works awakening people’s primitive memories by integrating his every hammer beat with the form of seed or fruit generating and sustaining life during the long production process.
