“Composition of Mammal’s” posters

A series of this Photographs, to show a pure fascination for the mysterious and delicate qualities of the Mammals Anatomy. The motive for the series of Photographs, “Composition of Mammals”, is to show the complex and interesting structure of the Mammals body. I came up with an idea of mock exhibition, “The Composition of Mammals”, which studies the anatomy of mammals with displays of taxidermy and skulls. This photographs was used by this exhibition poster. I tried to visually explain the contests of the show, by incorporating mu diagram-like illustrations of bone structures and photographs that I took and edited myself. This project was my graduation work at Tama Art University.

“うちから見た哺乳類展”という国立科学博物館での展覧会シリーズを想定した告知ポスターを制作しました。この展覧会は完全に僕の想定で実際には存在しません。

この展覧会の概要をイメージした際に浮かんだ、哺乳類という生物を扱いながら、生命の情緒や温もりが一切感じられない、無機質で、対象から一歩引いたような、ソリッドな世界観を告知ポスターのコンセプトにしようと考えました。

ポスターの背景に使った写真も自ら博物館などに赴き、哺乳類の剥製を観察し、一歩引いた一定の距離から、無機質でシャープな写真になるよう心掛け撮影しました。イラストレーションも自分の想像で描いていくのではなく、図書館などで探した参考文献などからイラストレーションを制作し、実際の哺乳類の構造に沿った、あくまで忠実なイラストレーションに仕上げました。

    I was curious if you ever considered changing the structure of your blog?

    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe
    you could a little more in the way of content so people could
    connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for
    only having 1 or 2 images. Maybe you could space it out better?
