“As a graphic designer, my days are spent doing client work.
I have no dislike for using my mind that way. In fact, I kind of like it.
However, I was always looking for a place where the visual I create can function solely by the visual’s own power.
I took this occasion to use fashion (knit) as a place for my visual to take root, and created these items.
That’s how this voluntary project, the “SHOGO KISHINO exhibition”, was born.
Knits have their own identity, so I thought it best to remove any identity form the visual that goes with it.
That’s why I used mosaic, to make the visual blurry and abstract.
In the process of creating these knits, I came to realize that we graphic designers are always required to came up with visuals that have identity.
One of the reasons why daily items, goods, T-shirts etc. which graphic designers produce end up being somewhat awry and criss-cross may be due to the nature of the graphic design profession, which causes a conflict between the graphics(identity) and the object(identity).
There was a lot to learn from this “it knit” project, through which I realized the connection between products (objects) and visual.”
