Nobushige Kono

Nobushige Kono's practice has mainly been focused on exploring the situation of images in the digital age, with careful consideration to how images are produced, distributed and perceived. The world of today is imbued with images. So it might be impossible to understand reality without thinking about images. But it is also clear that the images we have are already edited and altered in many cases. Therefore, it is crucial for him to find a way of dealing with postproduction itself through his own practice. In this context, found materials have a vital role, because they can be recycled through his own postproduction process to deconstruct their original functions, attempting to probe the conditions from another perspective.
