Crumbling Stories


Tokyo-based artist Ryo Shimizu is taking art to a whole new level with his latest project, CNJPUS. Look closely and you'll find that he takes strokes of Chinese characters and restructures them into letters of the Roman alphabet. Like many artists, he combines the beauty of history with the magic present in modern society.If that's not trippy enough, the letters actually crumble from the gallery wall to the floor, but not before they tell a story. Certainly, this is something that must be seen in person!
