Artwork Description

This carefully thought through composition leads the viewer on a nostalgia- imbued quest to identify childhood belongings. A coin-operated Gachapon vending machine acts as an unusual repository of traditional playthings, capturing within its clear walls, remnants of one’s childhood and the thrill of not knowing what lady luck holds in store.
