What is BBD (Black Box Diorama)?
BBD is Kawada's new series, which is a development of his "JOUKEIBAKO" series of extremely small diorama works.
The work is placed inside a black box, and the viewer looks through the opening of the box. By blocking out the light and limiting the direction from which the work can be viewed, the work appears to float in the dark space, allowing the viewer to become even more immersed in the world of the artwork.

The shortest way is the long way" (video produced by Sakatsu Gallery)

This is an original representation from Kawada's point of view of a race scene from the Targa Florio, a public road car race held on the Italian island of Sicily.

I created this image based on a single old photograph.

location has not been identified.
We think it is somewhere in Sicily.
The shady atmosphere of the trees reminded me of summer.

The rolling lines from the roof to the tail are very beautiful in this coupe.
The red body is a scene with green color.
