Teleport ＋ Torompe-l'œil = Telempo-r'œil
At PUKAPUKA I have been working on expressing images through letters and words.
When I talk to other people, the tone of voice and casual gestures stimulate me to create "Mindscape"=images of landscape in my mind.
Through conversations on the screen, I have met people who are far away from me, as if I were travelling.
This jewellery is like a postcard from my travels, depicting the mindscape that I was able to see by meeting people online.
・Blueprint... For cutting and folding according to lines on it

Send the three files and they will be sent to the recipient as if they were instantaneously transported.
The recipient can print the Blueprint and Painting of mindscape on the paper of their choice and assemble them to create a trompe l'œil piece of jewellery on the screen!

When I meet someone in person
First of all, there is a place where I am, and I naturally measure the distance between me and the other person.
As I exchange words, my place and the other person's place merge and become a place for both of us.
The screen has become the point of contact between people.
There is no place to share.
So I decided to give jewellery that is rooted in this point of contact.
A painting that was born in my own place, brought to life in the other person's place.
When the image of the person wearing the jewellery appears on the screen, it connects the paths that lead back to the point of contact between the two people.
By train, by car, by plane...
We no longer enjoy travelling to where distance is no matter.
The longing for faraway places is only increasing.
Why not let your mind travel beyond space by electronic waves ?
