CNJPUS TEXT is the latest work from Tokyo-based artist Ryo Shimizu. The text is formed by using strokes borrowed from Chinese characters and then restructuring them into letters of the Roman alphabet. Via artist a day:
Shimizu is influenced by Japanese traditions and practices–the relationship between history and modern society and between the self and other people. His work ranges from photography to three-dimensional objects and installations.
This appears to be his third and largest in a series of text-based installations dating back to 2009. (via artist a day )
